More Mac rumor madness for you kids. Now people are saying that Apple will have an Intel-based Macintosh by January, 2006. The big Intel deal is supposed to be announced during MacWorld in January, which makes sense to us. The original guesstimate was that Intel-based Macs wouldn't hit stores until June, 2006, but that seems a bit too late to analysts for a launch. Another question that could be posed: Will Mac OS X Intel go on sale around this time? Technically one could make an image of the Intel-Mac's hard disk and could copy that on to a non-Apple Intel box. Again, this isn't confirmed, but everything seems to be set for a January release date.
