Bob Cringley writes, For Apple to consider a processor switch, moving to IBM’s Cell Processor would have made much more sense than going to Intel or AMD, so the decision the announcement to use Intel platform several months later could be about BIG business. Two factors drive this :Microsoft’s strained relationship with Intel on the patronage of AMD & also from Intel's standpoint Microsoft doesn't work hard enough to challenge its hardware. Microsoft's bloatware strategy just isn't making new PC’s to be sold & the issue gets more serious with the delay in shipping Longhorn.Enter Apple - it is about Intel taking back control of the desktop from Microsoft. Intel does not see innovation coming from Microsoft ,which is a use for more processing power. And when they did have one with the Xbox, they went elsewhere.
