    I have not had the chance to try out the new Macs, but I was wondering, how much software that ships with them is native Intel X86?

    I understand most of Mac OS X would be native along with most of Apple's applications, but it would be interesting to find out what if any ships with the Macs that hasn't been ported yet.

    I know many of the larger application suites such as Photoshop/Dreamweaver will need to run in emulation etc.

    Quite a bit are native (Universal Binary). Aside from Microsoft Office (trial version), Quicken 2006, and Java 1.3, all included applications are Univeral Binary.
