I have no idea and I would hope not. I'm pretty curious as of what  
Apple wants to use to replace the current quad-G5 line which is  
really fast. For now, AMD64 X2 is still the clear winner compared to  
everyone else, but who knows what the landscape will look like by the  
end of 2006 ... (and Steve has always an ace up his sleeve ;)).
