At Intel's booth, not far from the white boy dance station, they have a wall showing off their Core 2 Duo line of supported laptops. There are quite a few manufacturers here...but no Macbooks to be found.
We checked with a few reps regarding Apple's absence, giving that Apple and Intel have been hooking up pretty seriously for a while now, and gloating about it to everyone who doesn't have a date to the prom. What did the reps have to tell us?
Rep 1: He was confused as well, mentioning that he had asked a higher up who hadn't given him any explanation.
Rep 2: Apple wouldn't allow Intel to use their products. While they could show an Intel Mac at their retailer's luncheon, Apple would not allow anything in the Intel booth.
