The Information Technology 100



You'd never know Intel had a few execution stumbles last year. Despite that rival Advanced Micro Devices stole much of the limelight for its hot new server and PC chips, Intel continued to gain share. Why? Businesses and consumers were -- and still are -- snapping up Intel's low-power Pentium chips for notebook computers. And, as more and more people turn to the Internet to shop, work, and play, companies are buying scads of the low-cost servers powered by Intel's Xeon chips.

Still, Intel's biggest coup came on June 6, when CEO Paul Otellini revealed he had convinced Apple Computer to use Intel's processors in all its Macs, starting in 2006. Nice topper to an already strong year.
