Apple to move to Intel? Analyst says yes

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Will Apple migrate future Macintosh models to an Intel-based architecture? Writing for, Michael Kanellos points to one well-respected industry analyst that certainly thinks so. The info appears in a new article.

Kanellos' source for this supposition is Bear Stearns analyst Andrew Neff, who foresaw the merger of Hewlett-Packard and Compaq as well. Neff doesn't see it happening right away, but in a 50 page "manifesto," suggested that there was an 80 percent chance Apple would make such a shift in two to four years. Neff justifies his theory by noting that it is a time in the marketplace "for company managements to take steps toward concrete changes."

What's more, IBM, which makes PowerPC chips used by Apple in certain Mac models, is de-emphasizing its hardware business, said Neff. A clear sign, he said, as IBM has a "relative lack of investments" in the hardware market.
