Ten years have passed since Apple first launched Intel Macs. From this day ten years ago and forward, Apple has done everything possible to kill off PowerPC. Anyway, Apple launched the Core Duo iMac and the first ever MacBook Pro as well, which also featured a Core Duo. Soon after, a core duo MacBook came and replaced the iBook and PowerBook G4 12in. Later on, the Mac Mini Core Duo and the Mac Pro Xeon were released as well, sealing off PowerPC for good. These early Core Duo machine weren't much of an improvement over PPC (I have the Core Duo iMac and can testify to that fact), however, when the Core 2 Duos rolled in, it was prevalent that Intel was the best choice and C2Ds were much more powerful than a G4 and even G5s. LONG LIVE PPC!
