Apple The very first Apple computers, distributed nationwide in 1977, had a hood you could pry off to reveal the CPU, the memory, and the motherboard. But almost three decades later, the company that pioneered "open architecture" with the Apple II, even with thousands of admirers looking on, was reluctant to pry the back panel off its new Intel Core Duo-based iMacs and MacBook Pro portables.

Isn't this article a bit pointless seeing as no who can actually say has any idea what is really inside one of the new Core Duo Macs.

I know! From the description I expected the article to be about taking one of those new Intel Macs apart and examining the contents.

What are you talking about? you mean what the code is on the EFI chip?

Really it does not matter in the long run since Vista will run on a machine that uses EFI.
