Submission + - Rumor: Apple plans to move laptops from Intel to A (appleinsider.com)

mario_grgic writes: Appleinsider is running a rumor that Apple is about to switch to ARM CPUs for all their portable computers and even desktops as early as next year. If true this would be quite a change (considering that it took Apple 4 years to switch from PowerPC to Intel) and I wonder what is the likelihood of Apple actually doing something like this. Can ARM actually compete with the Intel desktop performance?

I know Microsoft has announced that Windows 8 will run on ARM, but I don't think they meant only ARM.
