I've been thinking alot about what apple might be planning with the Intel release of the PowerMac. It's obvious that it's going to be one of the last macs to get the Intel chip (which actually isn't so convenient for me), but are there going to be any larger more signifigant changes? Is this going to be one of those things where it'll explode out onto the market "Twice as fast as any other personal computer in the world!!!", or will it just simply be updating their PowerMac to be in Intel maching, giving it a slight speed bump. Is the case design going to change? I would think that with the Intel chip being alot cooler than the PPC G5, they could have a mind blowing sleek small tower. Maybe.... same width as the G5, but lets say.... 14 inches tall and 16 inches back or something. I'm just speculating here, but I can imagine a nice sleek tower that isn't so bulky, being very attractive to new mac users, and cause alot of G5 tower owners to upgrade quicker than they otherwise would have. Could apple possibly be saving the release of the Intel Tower until Leopard is released? Maybe they'll both be released at the 2007 Keynote, in a giant explosion of glory, because Leopard will be built around the Intel chip, and make the Intel macs run MUCH smoother because of that. Maybe apple will have 2 or maybe even 3 Optical drive bays in the new Intel Towers. What thoughs or ideas do you have about the Intel mac pro?
