Dan Gillmor (via Peter O'Kelly) captures a thought similar to my own:

I predict sales of the company's computers, especially laptops, are going to plummet in coming months. I know I'm going to wait for an Intel-based machine. Apple's made it clear that the current line is going absolutely nowhere.
I really want to get my daughter a Mac, specifically a Mac Mini.  I've talked about this before.  But I can't shake the feeling that buying it now means an obsolete investment.  Sure, the developmental / learning games she could play today are already available, but how quickly will they disappear once Intel-based units start shipping?  Feels like a risk.  I just don't know what to do, but letting her use my IBM Thinkpad to play "Dora the Explorer" is just not an option.
