+ - Apple could drop Intel for ARM in iMacs/MacBooks->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Bloomberg reported scuttlebutt from Apple execs that the Cupertino company is considering dropping Intel chips from their iMac and MacBook lines so they have the same processor across their full range of products. Not good news for Intel, which is quickly being displaced by ARM's more efficient chips that are moving up from mobile phones and smack dab right into the middle of Intel's market.

From Project DisCo article: "Given that iMacs and MacBooks — according to Phil Schiller at Apple’s most recent product launch — are the most popular line of desktops and laptops ever to be sold, losing the battle to remain their central processing unit would be devastating to Intel. Conversely, it would signal that ARM is now the top-dog in the microprocessor world and might be the symbolic line that signals that disruption has officially occurred.""
