Apple has begun production of new products featuring the Intel Core Duo (what kind of name is that?) processor.

By the end of 2007, all new Apple desktop and notebooks will be running on Intel processors. That’s good news for me and many others. I’ve been contemplating on purchasing an Apple iBook for awhile now, and this news definitely makes my decision a lot easier :)

Steve Jobs stated that the move was brought on by Intel’s faster and cooler running chips. It looks like Apple is already showcasing their first Intel-based notebook. Comparatively speaking, the performance of the Intel Core Duo is decent relative to the Pentium M processor; the processor that the Intel Core Duo replaces.
