It’s true Apple IS switching to Intel x86 based chips. Like I said below, this will be great as it will allow us to run both Mac apps and Windows apps at full speed. Looks like my next new computer won’t be purchased for another two years and it will be Intel based.
The sure sign that Apple would switch chips making PowerPC Macs obsolete was probably the newspaper giving me a new G4 PowerBook 15″ laptop last week to work on. Now that’s the bleeding edge of technology.
So in one fell-swoop Steve Jobs has made both my PowerPC PowerBook (which will be replaced with Intel PowerBooks in the future) and my Dell laptop (which won’t be needed if Windows can run at full speed on a future Intel PowerBook) obsolete. Thanks Steve.
