Exactly what can AMD offer in terms of a better "road map" than Intel? I 
don't think it makes any sense for Apple to go with anyone short of the 
market leader. AMD puts out a great product but the share Apple provides 
would not keep them in business. So what happens if AMD's core business 
loses steam? Apple could find themselves in another scenario with a 
supplier who can't keep up in spec for spec or supply. Now for things I 
would have liked to see... Possibly Apple acquiring AMD. Though not a 
realistic prospect either.
