Apple to Skip Intel Chipsets in Upcoming MacBook Lineup?
From our front-page news:
When Apple first jumped onto the Intel bandwagon, fans cheered. Making the move to an x86 processor meant great compatibility, and given Intel's most-recent track-record, it also meant getting a much faster product. Well if recent reports are to be believed, then Apple might be considering a shift away from Intel, where chipsets are concerned, and ultimately, who knows.

And what exactly are they going to switch to? VIA's Nano platform? That won't cut it for standard size laptops anymore where users expect full performance.
AMD? Their chips eat more power than Intel's... but on the flipside they offer one of the most powerful IGPs, so I guess that is possible. Slightly.
Never know with Apple, but I do think this is just more wild rumor...
