Anger management
It's hard sometimes. Really hard. Even column writers at MacWorld seem to go blind with anger about Apple's transition to intel. How come one of them writes: "I’d like to be reassured that something better than what Intel is selling to Dell today will replace G5." Really?! You need reassurance that Apple, 11 months after today (or even 18 or 24 months, since the PowerMac doesn't necessarily have to be the first product to go intel) will get something better than Dell gets today? I think the reassurance is in the question, buddy.
I must say, I get angry myself. (For example because of reading aforequoted column...) But the other way 'round. IBM says they could deliver what Apple wants, for the entire line-up. Heck: Okay, then give Apple the dual core 3 GHz G5s for the desktops and some cool-running 64bit processors at 2 GHz at least for the notebooks. After that's happened and I've bought my 2 GHz G5 Mac mini for 499 USD, maybe I'll rethink my opinion about Apple's move to intel. But as of now, the move to intel seems the right thing to do, anyway.
Comments:
I deeply agree ... (no more comment necessary, you said it all)
 
yeah...if IBM really could do it, why wouldn't they?

Sounds like a lot of hot air to me...Go intel...minus the intel inside sticker...
 
i really don't think apple will use that intel-inside sticker. maybe on the _inside_ of computer cases, but certainly not on the outside. ;) the last time apple used any such stickers, i've seen red ones on my PowerBook 520c that read "Ready for PowerPC upgrade" or something. They easily came off. After that... Nothing. ;)
 
Interesting. I learn something all the time. Thanks and visit us at Computer Tips
