I'm worried they won't be able to keep the heat and fan noise down in a x86 powerbook. I'll be pretty pissed if the nextgen powerbook whines and whirrs as loud as the typical windows laptop. Other than that, I'm not sure when push comes to shove that I really care one way or another, but I do share in feeling a little betrayed by the PPC marketing hype. ;-)

It's nothing compared to the heat and noise that would have been generated by a G5 PowerBook...

Good point. I still find I don't care all that much about the hardware and processor. As long as you keep making pretty little machines that are functional, that crash less than windows, that are easier to use than windows, and pretty much that just aren't windows, and I'll be blissfully ignorant.

Agreed... the processor is just another component, and not really a big deal for most people... despite all the hype around processors, users' experience with the Mac shouldn't be altered in any way from that of Tiger running on a G5. In fact, on Steve's Pentium demo machine at the keynote, apps appeared to be more responsive than they are on my dual G5. And if the hardware engineering team can pack a G5 into the back of an iMac and manage to keep it cool, I'm not too worried about seamless incorporation of an Intel chip.
