All that is about the change with the implimentation of INTEL chips in the
Map platform, especially if you will be running BootCamp and a parallel MS
Windows OS. The introduction of INTEL processors may reduce the price of
the MAC system, and BootCamp is bound to increase the number of MAC users.
More users means more fish and that will eventually bring more
"phishermen." So, it's only a matter of time before Mac users get to
experience all the joys we Windows slobs enjoy daily. A few "blue screens
of death" and you'll be right down their with us. Then, it would be our
turn to gloat ... right after we finish running the latest spyware scan
and before we update our virus definitions.
