of Intel, Dev Kits, features and speed

Folks,

I keep getting emails/IMs stating “Macintels run Windows! Apple is supporting…”

The speed reports from WWDC and the hardware pictures are useful and cool, but please remember this:

The current dev kit hardware has no bearing on what Apple will ship to customers The real machines will have different motherboards, different processors and maybe (if we are lucky) be some of the first Intel machines to use Intels EFI BIOS (a more modern bios as opposed to what every PC uses, which is far inferior to the current Mac’s Open Firmware)

I doubt things will get slower in release machines, but one can never tell if a PowerBookIntel will be faster than a current G5 with native apps or what.

Just keep that in mind – Put no weight in the current hardware.
