Apple and Intel Again

I was talking with Kite and Kristie today and came to the realization that when you look at the big picture, Apple’s marketing is a bit spotty.

First off, (though this is slightly unrelated) the G5 was fabricated by IBM. Yeah, go figure. This may be even more of a market confusion than the whole Intel thing.

Secondly, the chips that Apple used were always touted as ‘faster’ than whatever else happened to be out. Fine, sure, maybe. But now they say that the Intel chip is making their machines 2-4 times faster than they were before. But then… they’re saying that an Intel chip in a Mac is more than 2-4 times faster than a similar chip in a Windows box. Lies?
