Apple goes Intel Core Duo
new engine

The Intel Core Duo powering MacBook Pro is actually two processors built into a single chip.
(iMac units with 2GHz Intel Core Duo :
2x faster)

Mac Universal Applications
New applications with the “Universal” logo are designed to run natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.
So whichever type you own, you can be sure your software will run at peak performance.
