Apple to Switch to Intel Processors

In a stunning move, Apple Computer has apparently reached an agreement with Intel for the manufacturing of processors for Apple products. According to CNET, Apple will no longer use the IBM PowerPC chips, and will instead look to Intel to produce more efficient, cooler chips. These new chips will be implemented first in Apple's lower-end models, but will eventually be used in the company's high-end computers as well. Based on this information, there is a possibility that the highly anticipated Powerbook G5 could be closer to reality thanks to Intel technology, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how Apple developers cope with the transition, since most applications will have to be re-worked to take advantage of the new processors.

Probably won't affect it much, but we may get more for our money.
