    This might be a move for them to go even cheaper against the typical, cheaper PC. I'm sure they'll still use specialized mobo's to keep the OS under control. But buying a cheaper, mass produced chip will give them another option.

    I don't see them writing for the x86 architecture for the consumer market.

    If OS X ran on a PC, they could attack windows.

    But yeah, they are traditionally a hardware company. Although that is changing. They are becoming a vertical, IP whoring, media distributor now.

    Apple has been threatening to use AMD for a LOOOONG time now. They threaten it idlely both to keep PC users thinking there is hope, and for keeping IBM in-check for PPC chip production... This is just another play on the game.

    I like how that article is full of shit tho... He justifies the falsity of the claim under the basis that Intel chips are not as well suited as PPC chips for a portable... Which is laughable considering Apple's decision to withold the G5 chip from a portable due to horrible battery life and thermal concerns.

    don't you realize that these "rumors" are the game??? You can't sit there and honestly think that Apple isn't encouraging this on some level??? Can you?

    They benefit the most from these rumors!

    I want to beliece that Steve Jobs is that apple guy on /. Seriously.

    And they DID file a patent on the look of the tablet.. so they ARE thinking about it. Doesn't mean it will happen, but because all their products are badass, we enjoy thinking and hoping!
