History – The beginning

History – The Intel transition

Apple produced PPC processors itself and on June 6th 2005 Steve Jobs announced that Apple will step into the new era and will start using Intel products inside their own. From my point of view – that’s when Apple went to masses, people could rely on Apple’s quality products as well as Intel’s. Firs Intel processor that was integrated to Macintosh computer was Core Duo CPU.

It was the end of Power Mac, iBook and PowerBook – yet it was a new era towards the MacBook, MacBook Pro and iMac – innovation begun.

Now who does not know about AppleTV, iPhone, iPad, iPod or more those nice gadgets that Apple has brought to us in the latest past (2007 – 2011). When Apple announced the release of iPhone the stocks simply skyrocketed to all time high. In May 2007 one Apple stock was worth 100 dollars.
