intel's next processors *made* for OS X
At least if you look at the names. ;) ... When Apple renamed Rhapsody to "Mac OS X", the 'X' was to symbolise both the UN*X at its core and the Mac OS version number, i.e. 10. However, when Apple released the first *client* version of OS X, it was suddenly called "Mac OS X 10.0", which translates to "Mac OS 10 10". Now intel is making _the_ processor for OS 10 10. The core 2 2. Erh... The "Core 2 Duo".
Naming fun aside, the processor(s) behind this name will be both the Conroe desktop and the Merom notebook processors. They're based on today's Yonah (Core Duo) processor and add intel's 64-bit extensions. Conroe is expected to be the processor(s) for Apple's desktop workstations, Merom is expected to find its way into the notebooks as well as the iMac and the Mac mini. Read more about it here.
