That is absolutely not true.

Try Googling "Dell D630 CPU upgrade" or "Dell E6400 CPU upgrade".

The D630 (a 5-6 year old laptop) with the right BIOS can be upgraded. Many of these older...

Well dominate is a relative term without statistics. I guess if Mac had 50% or more of the home sales in 2013 then you could say it was dominating simply because of forward momentum. However, most...

x3100

The x3100 is probably the biggest factor in this bump on the macbook side. The X3100 looks to be around 2x faster than the GMA 950 in the reviews and benchmarks I've seen on newer game titles. In...

If the pricing structure remains the same as the OP stated, that would mean you could get a 2.66 Ghz 8-way intermediate Mac Pro for $2500. That is just a notch up from a high end iMac.

That's basically what I postulated - more / faster / lower power / longer battery life. But nothing there would be revolutionary.

Don't know if anyone else has noticed, but the iTunes store seems a lot faster now too. Pages load quicker and downloads are much faster.

Power architecture is still, imo, a better foundation than the x86. In the real world, apple lost with PowerPC because they didn't get the backing for desktop PowerPC that they needed.
