So how would you guys feel if the next imac had an AMD inside. I feel like it would be a step backwards performance wise. The only advantage I could see would be if we got new ATi graphics sooner then later. The current imacs can have 4850's in them but desktop graphics have had the 5000 series for a while. I do plan on buying a new desktop with in the next 1-2 years. I would personally rather have an intel mac over an amd one.
