Seriously what's the big deal with this? Apple improved terrible headphones so what if they improve this?

They would be crazy to make such a change. There are many companies purchasing the apple hardware and running Windows on them. Also VMware virtualization would be a thing of the past on a Mac. If they make that change, bye bye Apple for many companies.

It's all testing like they'll make sure it's going to work or not. Someday this site will report about apple not doing this if that's going to happen.

I really hope this day never comes! ARM in a desktop? Thats a terrible idea. Moving to intel was the whole reason I bought a mac in the first place. Being able to use windows and osx on the same machine is the biggest selling point for people switching from windows to mac. Take that away and you will loose that entire market.

Yay a now it will be as slow as my iPod touch 4, every new OS makes it twice as slow

Sod that, I'd be moving back to Windows if this happens.

What? MacBooks don't have it, but seriously why do you find this bad?

Apple still should capture lot of mainstream program development on the desktop arena if want to shoot the move. If Apple switches to ARM, my mac no longer could support bootcamp with the ugly but still necessary WinAPI OS that still run lot's of financial analytic programs that in my case I need, or install those fancy games that apple still do not attract to its cocoa enviroment. Only a drastic price reduction in the hardware vs intel based line could put me in consideration to adopt it's new hardware. The way to go IMO, is to transform the AIR brand of OSX's, into an "hybrid" new system and make it a native OS-X platform that can handle iOS apps as well, and let the customers decide for this new environment.

Can't wait for WWDC to reveal what's up their source.
