Apple and Intel launched a new partnership in the personal computing universe as they showcased a new line of iMacs sporting Intel processors. The new intel processors designed for iMacs, titled 'Intel Core Duo' processors, boasts, in essence twin processors on a single chip. Prior to this announcement, intel had been primarily the processors for strictly Windows based PCs in the consumer market.

Apple Computer Inc.'s historic shift to Intel Corp. microprocessors came earlier than expected Tuesday as CEO Steve Jobs unveiled an updated iMac computer based on the world's largest semiconductor company's new two-brained chip.

"With (the) Mac OS X (operating system) plus Intel's latest dual-core processor under the hood, the new iMac delivers performance that will knock our customers' socks off," said [Apple CEO Steve] Jobs.

The Core Duo chip's low energy requirements are expected to enable ever-smaller computers, including some built right into television sets as the industry gears its machines more toward multimedia use.

Well, interesting stuff in the personal computing front.

First of all, it is another attribute that will continue to boost Apple as a worthy adversary to Windows based personal computers. Along with IPods, a superior INTEL processor, debuting in iMacs, will not only elevate Apple's prestige, but also heighten their presence in consumer's attentions. A VERY powerful signal to the world of the presence of Apple... for now and the future.

Next is Intel. They solidify themselves as the outright Caesar / King / Faerie Prince / Fuhrer of the personal computing processor market. Essentially unchallenged after their push to power their past adversaries, what other processor is feasible to any market that isn't savvy in the politics of computing?
As the processor, the engine (if you will) of the entire personal computer world, WHAT POWER THIS COMPANY HOLDS OVER SO VERY MUCH! I am no expert in the conspiracies of Intel. However, the sheer weight of their looming influence, alone, compels me to question just what is going on here.

No offence but this is a conspiracy web site and I don't really see a conspiracy anywhere in this - it's just business isn't it? Other than that it's a well written article.

Please re read my submission.
Take some time and reflect upon the colussus that is Intel at this point.

This is pretty cool news. The speed increase in using these dual core Intel chips over the IBM PowerPC chips is large. Mac stands to gain a lot of ground in the PC market with this new partnership.

Blessing, AMD is stealing market share from Intel in the x86 market at a rapid pace, and AMD rules the 64 bit desktop market.


EDIT2: AMD may become the standard chip in new Dell machines:
