Original OSNews Interviews The news that Apple is going to switch to Intel processors shook up the computing world. Many users and developers were eager to publish their opinions on the switch. However, one group of people were totally neglected during all this: resellers. Today, we feature an interview with Wim Schermer, first Dutchman to own a Mac (in 1984), and co-founder of one of the biggest Apple retail stores in The Netherlands, MacSupport. We discuss the switch to Intel, and much more.

Assume we have a 3.x something GHz x86 from intel, and its thermal output is in the range 35W. How in the name of all evil can a G5 CPU emit 175-245W of thermal energy?

Um, haven't you heard of the Pentimu M?

No, never. Could that be the reason I stated I think it's the best CPU Intel ever created?

Sarcasm aside, you've got a point. He was talking about laptops, and obviously a P4 is not even on the radar while M is. Still, is the M really that more efficient than a G5? 5-7 times is ... much.
