I didn't get the impression that Apple would be going Intel in order
to make Windows-compatible machines. Why would they care about that?
They already sell completely Windows-incompatible stuff, and why does
the world need another Dell/HP/Compaq/Gateway/... anyway?
If they're doing it at all, wouldn't it be for stock reasons, or
price reasons? (heh, since it apparently isn't about the performance).

People -already- say that about Macs ;).
