Well, the rumours are true. Apple is switching to Intel. Here's the official press release Honestly, this will either be Apple's big success or their big killer. I could literally see Apple going under for this. The weird thing is that RISC chips (like the G5 and the G4) are definitely better in speed, energy consumption, and other areas over the x86 (Pentiums). But I guess they feel that Intel has a better idea for the next decade. And not to mention the fact that IBM has shut down their laptop division. However, if this works, Apple will no longer be compared to PC's like apples and oranges. People will be out of excuses as to which system is better. I guess we'll just see.
