Mactel by Christmas?

Well, almost...

Apple Insider is confidently predicting new Intel Macs at Macworld in January. Other people are more sceptical, the Unofficial Apple Weblog is even holding a reader poll. Presumably because they're being honest about that fact that they, along with everyone else, haven't a clue what's going on, despite the rumours spreading almost out of control over the blogosphere. So, new Intel Macs by Christmas? Nope.. by January? Maybe, but I wouldn't lay money on it...

That said, Apple is on a marketing roll right now, and they probably don't want to rock the boat too much. Everyone is expecting a a big hardware rollout. I mean, it's Macworld, in San Francisco, with Steve Jobs giving a keynote. They have to give the press something. Right?

Update: Now the rumours are not only of Intel based Macs, but that and a price cut on top...

Update: The Unofficial Apple Weblog have an interesting angle on the rumours, they're arguing that the rumours of Intel based Macs are actually being spread by Apple themselves in an attempt to overcome the Osbourne Effect. It actually makes a twisted sort of logical sense in a conspiracy theory gone mad sort of way...

Update: Blogging the keynote live, looks like we're going to get our Intel Macs after all...
