Intel inside Macs

apple intel?Cnet is reporting that Apple will announce a shift from IBM processors to chips made by Intel as soon as this Monday. I’m having a really hard time believing this, especially with all the, they are/they aren’t moving to Intel “news” from the previous two weeks.

One quote in particular from the article that leaves me a little skeptical is:

Apple plans to move lower-end computers such as the Mac Mini to Intel chips in mid-2006 and higher-end models such as the Power Mac in mid-2007, sources said.

If any of this is even true, I have a harder time believing that the lower end machines would be first in line for an apparent speed boost, with the “Power PC” line getting their overhaul afterwards, as late as 2007? Like I said, I’m skeptical, we’ll see Monday.

    While I would be surprised, I’d actually be very happy to welcome “Intel Inside.” They definitely get how to make lower powered chipsets as well as fully integrated sets (Centrino) which include very strong AV capabilities in addition to the WiFi aspects.

    Talk about what will Steve announce..
