Goodbye PowerPC, Hello Intel

IA - TIME

Like many Mac afficiandos of late, I’m moving to an Intel-based machine. My trusty Powerbook G4 1.33Ghz 12″, is being sold to a friend for a steal, a companion for almost 2 years. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my Powerbook. I love the size, form factor, the total sexiness and presence. I still think it’s a kickass machine, probably one of the best notebooks Apple has ever made (it’s way up there, along with the Pismo). However, I felt it was time to move on. Intel is the future, Apple having made a complete transition from PowerPC (which has been the sole processor in all Macs for 12 years), and should be for years to come.
