Default Apple plans on using NVIDIA chipset for next Macbook

The evidence has been mounting over the past weeks and now I can say with reasonable assuredness that future Apple notebooks, among other products, will likely have NVIDIA chipsets and graphics solutions in them come this fall.

I usually don’t spend much time writing about Apple, their escapades into the world of PCs and the like, but this story seems to have gripped the world of tech since the Apple earnings call on July 21st. In that call the CFO of Apple mentioned an upcoming “product transition” but did not give any more details – and thus the speculation began. Would this be that long-awaited tablet Mac? What about just basic updates to the MacBook lineup? Newer iPods coming down the line?

Since the CFO went out of his way to mention that this transition might affect margins in the second half of the year, we can be reasonably assured that this move isn’t going to be something simple like a basic product refresh.

This must be the greatest piece of speculation that I've ever read. They're letting out a balloon and in the end seem to believe in the air they just blew into it.

I call this BS.

Nicely put Thorgal, will have to remember that phrasing.

Just more speculation, and Apple is ALWAYs being speculated upon...
