    When do you think Xserves will go to intel? will it be a xeon? This whole intel thing brings so many opertunitys to the whole entire mac line

    The Xeon (or Opteron :rolleyes: ) would be a good choice. Anandtech did a comparison, and the XServes got absolutely slaughtered in multiuser performance. Much of that was attributed to OSX's thread processing with the kernel, but a rewrite around the intel chip presents an opportunity to fix that some, maybe. Oracle said they programmed around the OSX Server problems to get acceptable performance.
