Scott from TG Daily has analyzed the differences between Apple's new Intel x86 processor based Macs and Intel PCs.
It isn't so much that Apple has some secretive technology they don't want us to see, believes Nathan Brookwood, principal analyst with the Insight64 consultancy. Instead, he told TG Daily this afternoon, it's more that Apple is a shy and reserved company. Up to now, it's never had to answer questions about what technologies and what chips - other than the PowerPC CPU - goes into its boxes. So with Apple formally entering the Intel realm just this week, he said, the company didn't demonstrate any willingness to change its basic personality. The lid didn't come off the back of the iMac; all that Brookwood got to see was revealed through the front end, where the screen is.
