Dell would make and sell Intel-based Macs if allowed
According to Fortune columnist David Kirkpatrick, Dell's founder Michael Dell says his company would make and sell Intel-based Mac computers if Apple allowed it.
Kirkpatrick also reports that Apple didn't even talk to AMD about pitching for its processor business - according to Henri Richard, AMD's chief sales and marketing officer.
In his June 16, Fortune column, Kirkpatrick relates how he emailed Michael Dell asking whether or not Dell would fancy producing Intel-based Apple computers running Mac OS.
He quotes Dell as replying, "If Apple decides to open the Mac OS to others, we would be happy to offer it to our customers".
