As probally all of you know, apple is switching to intel.

Do you think that that will make the computers less expensive?

Rumor has it that IBM couldn't produce enough chips on demand and apple couldn't ship as many imac g4's as were ordered. !

Anyway, I bet apple switched because they couldn't get the G5 processor into a laptop

BTW, already 2,000,000 copies of Tiger have been sold.

theres like 3 posts with 100 replies right under this one.. most are glad/some are mad, and im sure it has a lot to do with the fact that a 3.0 ghz g5 was promised and not delivered, and that a g5 laptop was unrealistic i wish they made one

Well, i guess 2.7ghz is not bad.

I wish they stuck with IBM.

I don't think Apple will lower their prices because running the Intel vhip will not make them cheaper. Remember that OS X will only run on an Apple product. Some Apple will be placing must likely the same stuff they are using now, except they will include an Intel processor.

The idea of a Mac that can dual-boot Windows is starting to grow on me, despite seeming like a bad idea at first. I for one would do that sometimes (I develop in Microsoft Access at work so it'd be useful there) but would always go back to OS X as that's the OS it was designed for and it's sooo much nicer to use.

I don't think Apple would let their system dual boot with windows. What make the Apple environment better (IMO), is how tightly coupled the hardware and the software is.

I saw a quote somewhere from an interview just after the keynote where the Mac rep said they'd allow Windows to boot on Intel Macs, but not allow OSX to boot on Wintel machines. If I see it again I'll post it...

Interesting, so if you don't like OS X. Then you can get an Apple to run windows.

Quote:
What about Windows on these fancy pants X86 Macs?
Again, no solid plans, but there is a good chance that Microsoft will continue to develop Virtual PC, and that it will be much faster on X86 hardware. Microsoft likes to sell Windows licenses, so no worries here.
Quote: After Jobs' presentation, Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller addressed the issue of running Windows on Macs, saying there are no plans to sell or support Windows on an Intel-based Mac. "That doesn't preclude someone from running it on a Mac. They probably will," he said. "We won't do anything to preclude that."
