The net’s abuzz with the story that Apple will
announce that they will switch to Intel as their primary chip supplier.
Many Mac fans are terrified, I’m pretty excited. I love the OS, the
style, and the reliability of the Macs, but let’s face facts, the
hardware is usually lacking in comparison to the more mainstream
hardware manufacturers. This is especially true when you look at price
and laptops as the primary targets. Apple has been lagging rather badly
with it’s laptop line, neither IBM or Freescale (formally motorola)
seem to be able to produce a competitive chip. Intel has one hell of a
mobile processor, let’s hope that Apple can make the transition
smoothly with minimal software upgrade pain.
