Intel processors willi be initially adopted in Apple
Computer's entry-level Macintosh PC lineup, including the Mac Mini,
iBook, and iMac series, with a launch in Taiwan slated for June 6 2006,
according to sources at Taiwan PC distributors. Apple Taiwan declined to comment on the report, noting
that the launch schedule would be released according to the company's
official statement. Apple said
earlier that the company would deliver new Macintosh computers using
Intel microprocessors by June of next year and transition all of its
Macs to using Intel chips by the end of 2007.
Apple's Mac OS X Tiger version 10.4.1, an x86 operating system for the Intel-powered Macintosh, is already available
for installation from Apple's website. Apple is expected to unveil its
new Macintosh PCs with the "Intel inside" logo on January 9 of next
year, when Macworld 2006 takes place in San Francisco from January 9 to
13, sources at domestic PC makers indicated.
