Friday June 3, 2005 11:19 PM EST

CNet is reporting that Apple is going to make the switch to Intel. The announcement is expected Monday June 6th at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco, at which Chief Executive Steve Jobs is giving the keynote speech. CNet reports - "Apple has used IBM's PowerPC processors since 1994, but will begin a phased transition to Intel's chips, sources familiar with the situation said. Apple plans to move lower-end computers such as the Mac Mini to Intel chips in mid-2006 and higher-end models such as the Power Mac in mid-2007, sources said."

(Update) Apple officially announced today it will begin offering Macs with Intel processors by June 2006 and will switch its entire product line by the end of 2007. "Our goal is to provide our customers with the best personal computers in the world, and looking ahead Intel has the strongest processor roadmap by far," said Steve Job’s Apple’s CEO. "It's been ten years since our transition to the PowerPC, and we think Intel's technology will help us create the best personal computers for the next ten years." Apple also announced the next major upgrade to Mac OS X is code-named "Leopard" and will be released in late 2006 or early 2007.
