Predictions on when Macintels arrive

Although Steve said that Apple will have at least one Intel Mac available by WWDC 2006, and complete the transition by WWDC 2007, I think that things may move faster than many are saying. Looking at Intel's roadmap says a lot, and it really shouldn't take developers that long to create universal binaries. My predictions:



MWSF 06: Mac Mini (single core Yonah), iBook (low-voltage single core Yonah), PowerBook (dual-core Yonah/Merom)



WWDC/Apple Expo 06: iMac (dual core Yonah/Merom, dual-core 64-bit Conroe)



Leopard release: PowerMac (dual dual-core 64-bit Conroe), PowerBook (dual-core 64-bit Gilo)
