Macs on Intel - riding down the cost curve

Category : Commentary/costcurve.txt

"Time is the friend of a good business,
the enemy of the mediocre" - Warren Buffet

The day is finally here. We've got Macs on Intel, a move that strikes at the heart of the Wintel duopoly. The MacBook Pro has got Intel inside but not Intel prices. But the Core Duo chips are still new.

From now on, the more PCs (with Core Duo chips) that are sold, the cheaper the Mac will get. Apple rides down the same cost curve as Dell. It's like "going with the flow", the Aikido philosophy of "protecting oneself against aggressive attacks by blending and neutralizing them". Turn your opponent's strength to your own advantage.
