The latest rumor surrounding Apple involves its use of Intel processors in its laptops. Apple is rumored to be planning a move to the ARM architecture once the 64-bit cores come to the Cortex A15, code named Eagle. The move will happen with laptops at first, and may even move to the desktop around the same time. The move is still a few years down the road, but Semi Accurate feels it is an absolute lock to happen. With the history that their sources have, it doesn't seem too far fetched.
