Apple moving to Intel chips?

A report in the Wall Street Journal on Monday says that Apple has been in discussions with Intel Corp. to supply the company with chips for its Macintosh computers. Neither company would confirm the report and an Apple spokesperson characterized it as "rumor and speculation." The report cites two industry executives who claim to have knowledge of recent discussions between the companies. They said Apple will agree to use Intel chips. It was unclear if this would mean Apple would abandon the PowerPC or if a new line of Macs powered by the Intel chip would be introduced.
