Apple did not acquire PA Semi to create PPC CPUs for Macs, thay acquired PA Semi to design chips for mobile devices. Besides which, Apple loves Intel chips, Intel loves Apple and Boot Camp is such a big selling point it's unbelievable. Even Paul Thurrott usies a Mac, thanks to Boot Camp. Intel's Core2 line (And it's younger sibling Core i7) are the Mac CPU roadmap as it stands for the foreseeable future.
Amen, don't call it:
Mac Mini Pro
Mac Pro Mini
Call it 'Mac'
mac mini < iMac < Mac < Mac Pro
Makes sense to me.
It might make sense to you, but if you call it Mac (Which you would not since it's headless and Mac(intosh) has a builtin display, it would fit like this:
Mac mini, Mac, iMac, Mac Pro
And I'll show you why that's the case:
Entry, Consumer, Style, Professional
Mac mini, (GAP), iMac, Mac Pro
MacBook White, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro
Don't be surprised if it does appear, and be less surprised if it's a Cube.
I'm not joking, it's probably a Cube.
