AMD AMD chief executive Hector Ruiz said Wednesday that Apple will eventually use its microprocessors alongside those from Intel. Ruiz made the comments during a dinner speech at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, according to Bloomberg. "Everybody wants choice," he said, adding that rival Intel's practices have stifled the PC industry's growth. "Knowing Apple, why would they want to be held hostage like everyone else has been?"

Apple probably knew that Core2 will be fastewr than A64's so they chose it. Intel managers were probably better salesmen in this case than AMD's. And for spoiled Mac users Intel is probably a word they want to see sticked on their box (or elsewhere).
