What if...
Authored by: trex67 on Jun 08, '05 10:42:38PM

What if IBM comes to Apple in a year or two and has something that blows Intel out of the water? Will Apple stick with the dual platform or say no thanks? If options are good, as Jobs says, why not use PPC as an option for the high end users that prefer it?

I will not "upgrade" if a Pentium can't handle the workload that my almost two-year-old 2X2.0 GHz first gen G5 PowerMac handles with ease, namely, nearly unlimited VST and MAS plug-ins in MOTU Digital Performer.

Trust me, it will. Pentium D (dual core) chips can handle it now. When the transition starts, Intel chips will handle the load just as well as PPC. We don't have to worry about that, at least.

I look forward to buying a new Mac mini with an Intel chip inside, and I also think that I will buy myself a nice portable mac too.. to compliment my Dual 2.0 and my G4-733.

I think we'll be surprised how well they will work. ;)
