In an alliance of two of the highest profile companies in the technology industry, Apple Computer has said it would begin using microprocessors from Intel in its computers beginning next year. As Apple positions itself to use an industry standard that powers more than 80 percent of the world's PCs, though, consumers could decide to wait for the new Intel models to hit the market in about a year, analysts said. "This transition could get ugly," said analyst Rob Enderle.


OEM battle

I see Mactel as an OEM battle.
Apple will offer machines that can run Windows OR OS X.
Dell, HP,Gateway, etc. machines won't run OS X
(as far as I know).
Linux, of course, can run almost anywhere.

Mr. Enderle, if you buy a NON-Mactel machine
you have FEWER choices.

If you buy a NON-Mactel machine you have a greater
chance of it "going to be obsolete".

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
