A post was split to a new topic: Apple may buy Intel’s smartphone modem chip

From all these excellent links as well as what I’ve read elsewhere, I’ll take big odds on Apple rolling its own ARM processors for Macs. My trusty and much loved MBP has begun its slow but inevitable journey to that great Apple graveyard in the sky. Though I know it will be best to replace it with a new mini or MBP, because I bought my equally beloved 9600 literally 6-8 weeks before Steve Jobs announced that OS X would only run on Intel Macs. So I’m hesitating that I’d once again be left out of the latest and greatest software and upgrades and hoping Apple will begin rolling its own ARM Mac processors sooner than later.
