    With regard to the recent news about apple switching to intel; the only thing i can think about is the attitude of some members on these forums. It absolutely stinks!! There's no doubt about it!!

    I really hope this isn't the general consensus across the board, but from what i've been reading, it somewhat appears that way!

    :rolleyes:

    It's okay, it's okay!

    I just quickly checked outside and the world seems to be still revolving which is a good sign. I imagine it'll only last another few years though. :(

    Apparently, Apple are phasing the world out gradually over the next two years! :p

    Ummm...you seem non-commital - on what side of the fence do you sit?
    :confused:

    Personally, I'm of the "I don't care because with Apple software and engineering skills it'll still be great"-camp.

    Ok, so I'm expecting a wild statement:
    Hahaha :D isn't "don't care" the same as "non-commital"? Now I'm :confused:

    Good call! :D

    As for EGT's original comment, yeah I agree. The reactions have been a bit topsy turvy but to be fair, it is a bit of a shock to many of us. We've had rumours like this in the past and they've always just evaporated but this is real! :eek:

    It is pretty crazy, I remember watching the mhz myth video and even playing it for some friends and showing them how much better PPC is than x86. Whatever...I'm sure Apple/Intel have something up their sleaves and will make it worth while. Steve isn't stupid, we will have some fast ass kicking machines.

    i don't think there's anything wrong with switching to intel, it's just i'd rather not buy a mac right now that uses an entirely different processor architecture than they will in a year. i wouldn't have bought a 680x0 mac during the transition to PPC either. i'm going to buy a mac for my next computer purchase after this summer's, as by then the transition will be complete. yeah, it's pretty shocking all right. i got home, woke up my mac and looked at MR and i was like ....WTF..... but yeah, i'm sure SJ has our best interests at hand or w/e. just wish they'd take down those benchmarks on the P-Mac page...:rolleyes:

    I just hope the Mac Chime isn't replaced with the Intel Inside jingle every time you turn on your Macintel.

    I don't care about the transition but I would hate an "Intel inside" sticker on my mac! :mad: ...

    It's all getting right on my titties. So many people all flying off the handle when 90% of them have no idea what is actually going on, and wouldn't have a clue of the change under the hood anyway if they weren't actually told about it.

    Then you've got all these people posting new threads over and over again on the same bloody subject.

    ARGH! :mad: :rolleyes:

    I've decided it's not worth wasting my time and breath trying to keep on top of it all, and attempting to explain things, let 'em all go nuts, I really couldn't care less (as irritating as it is).
