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.

Considering that Apple was a co-inventor of ARM.


Apple was one of the the first 3 investors in ARM the company along with Acorn and VLIW.

They did not however "invent" the "Acorn RISC Machine" processor. That was done by Acorn on it's own several years earlier.
