Apple Another Apple-to-switch-Macs-to-ARM post. "Apple engineers have grown confident that the chip designs used for its mobile devices will one day be powerful enough to run its desktops and laptops, said three people with knowledge of the work, who asked to remain anonymous because the plans are confidential. Apple began using Intel chips for Macs in 2005." No idea when Apple will make the switch, but they will do it. I'm thinking 5-10 year timeframe.

Apple would be idiots to do this, but then again what do I know?


Why so? They've got a lot of experience of ARM now, it having been the basis of their best selling products for quite a few years. If they think the next-generation chips are going to be competitive as desktop hardware, why would they be idiots?
