I've heard that this project does, indeed, have certain powerful incectives to get parts out by a particular date.
Apple's R&D budget is wayyy up. I wonder if IBM is getting those incentives. When you put it LIKE THAT then...hmmm.
Would Apple be so audacious? They might be. A dual boot that could make Windows fly and offer even better 970 'X' performance..?
I think this could be a killer strategy.
Every x86 dual boot Apple sold would earn them money. It won't undermine the Mac platform because they sell a Mac.
People get to try 'X' and like it. They get to use x86 and have a cool looking machine.
Hell, if you're paying £2K for a Dell, why not get a Mac and run x86 as well.
Kinda like two for the price of one?
Classic supermarket buy one, get one free...
When you are losing sales in the education sector. This could be a solution. Let's face it. An x86 m/b and cpu functionality are quite dirty cheap. Apple could sell PC functionality in their machines quite cheaply for the premium they charge.
'Dual Boot'. Whither Moki?
