Apple and Intel…AGAIN!

Engadget posts on it here. Gizmodo on the same here.
Apple denies this vigorously. However, given the G5 Powerbook meme running around the blogosphere (here), the serious side of this is that unless Apple discovers a new type of physics, they have maxed out their ability to squeeze power out of their chip choice. Cooling the G5 enough to put it in a Powerbook profile apparently still requires a portable tank of liquid nitrogen to accompany the user around in his mobile travels.
Apple is stuck. They have nowhere else to turn to squeeze more power into their portable computing platforms.
They have to decide: Intel or AMD.
It’s not a pipe dream anymore. It’s a necessity for Apple to remain relevant in the notebook and laptop market.
