John and Guy go round and round on Apple’s latest offerings; The Intel Macs. The hype bar is raised and expectations are even higher. Can Apple successfully transition to Intel without losing their soul? This is Apple’s fourth major transition (Apple II to Macintosh, Motorola 68xxx processors to PPC, Mac OS Classic to OS X, PPC to Intel) and bumps in the road can certainly be expected.
