So now that Apple is in the midst of switching over to Intel processors and folks have pointed out that the CPUs are more expensive I wonder what the real cost is? There are various factors such as Apple needing to design and support the manufacturing of the various support chips, if and when those could not be found on shelf, as well as board design. My guess is that designing the support chips and having them made as well as board design costs could more than offset the extra costs of the CPU. What do the rest of you think?
