Found this ARTICLE claming they have recieved information stating Apple will announce a switch to intel on monday. I thought this was a rumor that was going to blow over like they have done before...are they really switching??
mklos said:Now, consider this....
What if Intel made a PPC chip?
Sun Baked said:Yes, it's true...
That moron Dvorak announced Apple should do it 10 years ago, and I think he wrote tons of articles on it.
If you are this gullible... can I interest you in some genuine alien artifacts that I have morphed into rocks to hide them from the govt?
Yes, a site that often posts a bunch of crappy speculative Apple articles along with everyone else.Tamer Brad said:This is completely uncalled for ... do you not realize what site this is? X_X
Sun Baked said:There are a lot more likely reasons for Apple to buy Intel chips or to even work with Intel, including a switch from the current AMD x86 units the have been using in Apple products for a number of years.

Doesn't make it true.
We got these same articles when Apple started purchasing a bunch of AMD x86 chips.

Who did I call that...Tamer Brad said:I completely understand that the news could be fake, but I think acting like someone's an idiot for believing something from news.com is a bit too far ...
Looked again, it's a AMD 200/333 MHz MIPS risc unit in the base stations, some of the sites recently kept saying x86 -- so that stuck in my mind, I looked at the teardown to double check.mad jew said:Wow, cool thanks. So Intels in the Xserves and AMDs in the Airports.
Actually it isn't about the CPU, it's about development dollars and MicroSoft. Two things Apple doesn't want to mess with.emaja said:Not to start an argument, but if is it all about the software, as we have told PC users for years, does it really matter if it runs on a Intel CPU?
