Re: Apple announces shift to Intel chips from IBM
The reason they have gone with Intel is because AMD cant really supply the way OEM's need. Jobs will still have memorys of Motorola and he needs to be assured of consistancy. Intel may nothave the top spot in terms of preformance, but they're close, and they're not going anywhere soon.
EDIT: I think the main thing that pushed this desicion (and its been planned for years) to happen now is Apple has been unable to aquire a G5 cool and efficent enough to fit the Powerbook range. They need updating, and Intel is last but good soulution to the problem.
