Intel-Based Macintosh Computers May Be Released in January

The first commercial Apple Macintosh computers running on Intel processors may be released a bit earlier than expected, believes UBS Investment Research analyst Ben Reitzes. He claims that Apple will have new products and content to announced at the Macworld Expo scheduled for early January and notes that Intel is expected to unveil its dual-core Yonah processor for mobiles also early next year. The analyst, excepts from whose research notes were published by AppleInsider web-site, believes that early January, 2006, is a possible timeframe for the first Intel-based Apple computers to debut. UBS researchers suppose that the first of Apple's computers to use Intel processor, in particular, Intel's next-generation Pentium M flavour code-named Yonah, will be Mac Mini. The firm claims that Apple's strategy will be to equip its computers with Intel processors starting from the most affordable models.

"We continue to believe that both the PowerMac and PowerBook will be introduced at a later date (late 2006 or early 2007) – with the possible use of the Intel's Merom processor for the PowerBook and Conroe processor for the PowerMac," Mr. Reitzes is reported to have said.
