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 thats a good point on something you could do with an apple pc but i think your point is kind of contradicted. You say that most people treat their pc's as general appliances then you go to say that they will increase market share with dual boot systems. Do you think those people who don't know anything about computers are going to dual/triple boot their systems? Are you going to pay a lot more for your hardware so that you can boot the apple os?
