IBM decided not to do a notebook G5?
Today's CEO of Freescale, Michel Mayer, was previously the person working at IBM who 'sold' Steve Jobs the G5 processor, when Steve Jobs for the first time wanted to go with intel five years ago. Today, he says
(links to second page of c|net's interview): "And then IBM decided not to take the G5 into the laptop and decided to really focus its chip business on the game consoles."
Now doesn't this sound very much unlike
what IBM had us believe. I don't want to take sides here, but I get the feeling that maybe Apple should have gone intel the first time, but better late than never. In related news, digitimes reports that the first intel Macs are due on the 6th of June 2006 - not in January, as some sources tell us (and many other rumour sites predict).
