    I dont think this has been mentioned before, but.. look at this..

    http://www.intel.com/products/processor/index.htm?iid=home+hdr_nav2_processors

    and this

    http://www.intel.com/products/server/processors/index.htm?iid=process+server

    incase you dont notice anything..those are LEOPARDS advertising quad core processors. there aren't on the desktop or laptop processors pages, just the processor page and the workstation/server pages. think its a hint? a coincidence? I know I am grabbing at less then straws. but i want a new Mac pro.

    They're supposed to be cheetahs, you weren't the only one to think that though.

    Yep...they're cheetahs. Part of Intel's "Multiply" ad campaign.

    well...it seems to me Leopards are also yellow with spots. and cheetahs are more slender, and they seem to be fairly stocky, but ok..i said i was grabbing at less then straws. :)

    definitely cheetahs, maybe OSX 10.0 (aka Cheetah) was made Intel compatible. :p

    Yep, it was!

    Remember Steve's keynote speech regarding the PPC >>> Intel switch?
    He stated that Mac OS X had been living a secret double life from the start. ;)

    Quite funny that the fastest cat was actually the slowest version of OS X :p

    They are poor quality images on the links you posted to, but there is other material out there that shows them definatly as cheetahs.
