You may have missed all the web content about this but answer one thing. Why didn't the G5 go into the notebooks?

And how is the new dual core able to run faster than it's predecessors?

If you are looking for CPU WARS, that's over in another forum.

Question about it

Did anyone else ever use motorola as a manufacter for their processors. And if so who because as far as I know this signals the end of motorola making processors for computers as apple transitions to intel processors by the end of the year. By the way I think the answer to your question is that intel is pumping more money into the company than motorola was while providing a better processor. I haven't read any news on motorola but I'm almost certain they don't have any plans in the works for a dual core processor. But like R. Proffitt said if you want more info check a cpu forum I'm sure there are plenty of opinions there.
