So, for those of you upset about the thought of "Intel Inside" stickers on your Macs, Intel have a new set of logos. Note, they've apparently trademarked the word "Core".

They don't look as "loud" as the current one's do. But I still wouldn't want them on a Mac. I wonder why they went with a different look with the word "Intel". I thought maybe they changed their logo, but checked their site and it's still the same. Probably just for the stickers I guess.

You don't suppose they'd change the logo on their site when they release a new logo? ;)

And here's what Intel's logo used to look like long ago:

Just to **** with all the people that worry about a sticker on their computer, I hope Intel requires Apple to laser etch the Intel logo on the computer (and make it as big as the Apple logo). :D

Funny, the only thing the intel logo had going for it, was that stupid half fallen "e"... Now it has nothing :rolleyes:

Core™ my ass.

Again...??? Is it something that happens every time you read the word Intel, or just when the subject gets onto Mactels...? :p

As to those Core™ logos, they look really fake... :rolleyes:

i still think "the swoosh" is the most over used trend in modern design. Come on intel you could be more original....

That at part, at the least, made it stand out somewhat from other logos. Not anymore. The old one was better, IMO.

You know, when I think about this, I may have jumped the gun on this one - I was reporting it via Anandtech, who reported it from some French site that I can't be bothered trying to translate, and that may be totally unreliable.

Anyone with a little experience with Photoshop could have put these together easily.

Ah man, ugly ass stickers! Although I am very glad that intel doesn't require that they're put on their systems, PC companies just put them on there to make them look prettier (which, you know, says a little something about PC design).

Why is everyone so upset about Apple using Intel? It's an architecture, and Apple must be able to do more with it than what they currently have or else they wouldn't have made the switch. Accept the change.

We might accept it, eventually, but we sure as heck doesn't have to like it...!

It's not that that's upsetting some people. It's the stickers that may be attached to the computers.

Here's a related link about Dell and the stickers: link
