Will Apple use Motorola's new G4? ZDNN reports that Motorola on Monday announced a faster PowerPC chip that could be used in speedier Apple Computer laptops. "Motorola said it is now producing samples of a 1.42GHz PowerPC processor, a chip analysts say might soon find its way into the PowerBook, Apple's high-end laptop. Motorola said the chip has a typical power consumption of less than 20 watts, a level that makes it suitable for laptops. The chip also contains multimedia instructions that are required for chips that Apple bills as G4 processors." More.
