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 see apple increasing their marketshare just because people can load their windows on it. so i believe their marketshare will increase at least on the hardware side. software on the other hand would be a bit tied as it is not compatible with all x86 machines unless otherwise cracked, etc.

*they could always leak copies to increase their marketshare.
