Apple has nothing to do with the Telephone company.It is just good old OSX. Think about LINUX that runs on PPC and X86 and nobody goes around trying to come up with silly names LINUXTel.When the new X86 machines start selling apple shouldn't even bother to say which CPU is inside. It doesn't matter anymore nor should anybody really care. Reply 7 of 38 wormboy Posts: 220member June 7, 2005 2:15PM Neither. These will be Apple powermacs, powerbooks, iMacs and iBooks. (oh and mac minis). The chip manufacturer has no place in those names.The "G" series names drifted away from moto/IBM nomenclature years ago. The G5/G4 monikers will be dropped almost for certain. Apple could choose to go with G6 (unlikely) or with another differentiator. It is a marketting decision. In any case, they will have to find someway for marketting to differentiate the power and i lines. Reply 8 of 38 kwsanders Posts: 327member June 7, 2005 6:51PM We should not use either one of those names. I like MacIntel, but tthis is nothing other than a slang description that people attach to something, nothing official. Let's call it what it really is... Apple using Intel processors in the Mac to run OS X.Yep... long name, but sounds good.

Reply 10 of 38 onlooker Posts: 5,252member June 7, 2005 11:17PM I have disliked all the suggested combo names I've seen for this until I saw Anders say "Macintel". That's not that bad. Better than anything I've heard yet anyway.

The Apple and OS X names shall do no such thing either! Reply 13 of 38 fallenfromthetree Posts: 338member June 8, 2005 2:35AM I've been referring to them as "AppTel" But I guess you're right.It's still an Apple ComputerBut what do we do about the PowerMac series?Without the Power PC, will it still be called a PowerMac? PowerBook?

Reply 17 of 38 sybaritic Posts: 340member June 8, 2005 8:07AM MacIntel indeed. Or MacIntents, with the pun implied. Reply 18 of 38 vox barbara Posts: 2,021member June 8, 2005 9:48AM What about i Mac ?Ah couldn't resist. I don't give a damn aboutthe new name, as long as they avoid any variants or broken anagrams of intel .meaning: no Mactel, no Apptel, or any other fun-pun-tel.Am i the only one who feels, that Macintel, Telmac or whatever simply sounds el cheapo grande?Crazychester, your turn please. Reply 19 of 38 rageous Posts: 2,170member June 8, 2005 11:10AM Why are you folks so quick to throw Intel's name into the mix? Let us not forget, Wintel is predominantly a negative connotation used by Mac people when referencing "them". Maybe something more creative and/or original?Think Different. Reply 20 of 38 sybaritic Posts: 340member June 8, 2005 11:18AM Quote:originally posted by rageous:Maybe something more creative and/or original?Think Different. You're right. No Intel. I'm sure the folks at Apple will kick derierre with the name. When have they not? «12» Sign In or Register to comment.
