SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) - Apple Computer Inc. is considering using chips made by Intel Corp. in its Macintosh computer line, The Wall Street Journal said Monday.

Two industry executives with knowledge of recent discussions between the companies said Apple will agree to use Intel chips, the report said. The impact on International Business Machines Corp., (IBM) Apple's longtime chip supplier, is unclear, the report added.

Such a move would be a coup for Intel, (INTC) which already powers the majority of the world's personal computers with its Pentium microprocessors. Apple could benefit from having a source of lower-priced, higher-performing chips, as it has seen growth in its flagship Macintosh line.

Representatives from Apple (AAPL) and Intel (INTC) could not be reached for immediate comment.
