A Mac with Intel Inside

The big news for us geeks yesterday is Apple is Switching to Intel. What does it mean? Not a lot really for the end user. You won't be able to go down to Wal-Mart and buy a cheap PC and install OS X on it. In a couple of years you will be able to buy a Mac with Intel inside. Your new Mac might be cheaper and faster.

Just an FYI, I am running Mac OS X on an Intel right now. And posting on this website from it.

I watched the Jobs' demo. The OS looks very fast on x86.

I think this will expand sales because the processor speeds will be apples to apples comparisons instead of the current apples to oranges.

PCs appear on paper to have faster speeds due to Intel, when my iBook kills my wifes Dell laptop. :)
