Apple Is Serious About Going Intel, Analysts Prepare To Eat Their Words
from the halley's-comet-indeed... dept
A few weeks back we, along with just about everyone, trotted out the latest version of the old rumor that Apple was thinking of moving to Intel chips, and ditching IBM. Considering that this rumor shows up quite often, we didn't put much faith in it, only posting it because the reports seemed a bit more credible. Of course, almost immediately there were denials, including Intel CEO Paul Otellini's great "Halley's Comet" quote. Well, it turns out that this time around, the rumors might be true. News.com has the scoop that Apple will make the official announcement on Monday. We'll still only believe it when we see the "Intel Inside" sticker on a Powerbook, but it certainly sounds like this time might be for real.
