The PowerBook laptops are likely to be the first Apple computers to use Intel processors, and are widely believed to be overdue for an upgrade.
The devices would also benefit greatly from a switch to Intel processors which cut back on power consumption and produce less heat than the Power processors currently used in Apple computers. This increases battery life and allows for greater performance.
The vendor said that the first Intel-powered computers would be made
available before June 2006, and that Apple's full product line will have
switched over by 2007.
Apple published information on its website for a brief period last week concerning an upgrade to its iLife suite that currently bundles applications like GarageBand 2, iPhoto and iMovie.
The links on the webpage pointed to new product called iWeb, which is expected to be an HTML editor that allows users to create and publish websites.
