If you can go intel , then by all means go intel.

like TCPMeta said only a handful of AMD products work.

You will have an easier time getting it working on intel hardware.

find a laptop with an intel CPU and intel chipset but I think maybe even a nvidia nforce may work because the new macbook pros use those.

the main thing to keep in mind is that apple designed OS X to work with Intel CPUs
and PPC cpus, so it will work best with those as opposed to AMD.
