Apples stands to benefit in the areas of motherboard and processor design.

Apple's switch to Intel will finally give the Cupertino company a comparable processor platform to the big name PC OEMs on both desktop and notebook machines. Apple notebooks have long had the looks to wow consumers, but their performance was really nothing to brag aboout when compared to PC notebooks. Apple could also benefit in other areas of development if the rumors of Intel's decision to design Mac motherboards become reality. The move to Intel is expected to boost Apple's worldwide marketshare from roughly 3% of the computer market to 6% by the end of 2007.

I think they will reach 6% market share way before then. Don't they stand at about 5% for US and about 2.5% worldwide? Wait, 6% worldwide or US by 2007? Now I can't remember what the article said.

If they allow or not try to stop people to dual boot the iMAC to XP, they will get 10% easily this year.
