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.

Why else would they do it? iPhone, iPad & iPad with a lid plus the odd boxen (perhaps with it's own internal cloud of several PC's) with some humongous retina screen monitor. How cool would that be.....very, from what I gather.
