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.

Macbook Air with 12 hours or 15 hours of battery time... I'd love it.

BTW I think that the PRO line must stay with intel. ARM doesn't have enough power to virtualize Windows for example.
