    I dont know what the odds are, but apple's stock closed at 8086. 8086 being the original ( i think) architecture of the Intel Pentium CPU. Seriously this is one of the wierdest things i have ever seen.

    It might be a first for an event that the stock goes up afterwards.

    As for the number - after market trading at 7:59 PM according to yahoo puts Apple at 81.89 - another $1.03

    Nice way to go Apple! :D

    It did indeed close at 80.86 (not counting after hours trading that took it to 81.89).

    Hi-larious.

    8086 was the pentium's ancestor. then the 80186, 80286 (286) 80386 (386), 486, then pentium (586)
    thats pretty cool--how far up is it?

    Can you say:

    Apple = Volatile :eek:

    Apple stock is just too big of a risk. :eek:

    AAPL already reached 81.89 during trading hours, fell to 79 and closed at 80.86

    But does this mean, the day Apple switches back, the stock price will reach $601?

    There was no 80186. It went:

    8088
    8086
    80286
    80386
    80486
    Pentium (80586)
    Pentium Pro (80686)

    See here

    I think the architecture has been of the 686 caliber for some time now.

    Wise guy.. ;) It was hard enough finding the hall of fame. After looking at the specs for the 186, it says it was mostly used in controller applications. Now I understand why I never saw it in a desktop.
