I just finished reading an article on the new Sony/IBM/Toshiba cell processor. This thing is based on a powerpc architecture and will house 8 cores on one chip running at 4 ghz! In a nutshell all the experts agree this chip literally is a supercomputer on a chip. How pimp would it be if through the cooperation of IBM, apple incorporate the cell chip into its powermac or better yet powerbook line! I think its doable simply because the cell chip is based on the powerpc design. Hackers could then turn the PS3 into a powerhouse apple computer! I think the cell processor would make Apple a force to be reckoned with!
