IBM Assimilation?

MacWhispers claims to have major new info regarding the PowerPC 970, and specifically its cost to Apple.

According to sources, the 970 will cost Apple around 35 percent less than the G4 currently costs. With this in mind, MacWhispers speculates that Apple will be using IBM processors in all models across all lines by spring of next year. These processors include the 970, 980, and GOBI chips (IBM currently produces G3s for Apple).

The ramifications of an all-out move to IBM are massive, but almost entirely positive for Apple users (although you might want to sell your Motorola stock). Obviously, this is a major rumor that will probably receive even more attention after the WWDC keynote.

Might I say, Resistance is futile?
