Hi all,
I would like to buy an iMac 17". Apple folks say it is being now shipped 
only with Intel Core Duo.
Intel processor outperforms the PowerPC but there will be a transition 
period  in which several applications will run in emulation-mode using 
the Rosetta technology, which of course will diminish any perceptible 
speed ups.
Still the 20" iMac has a G5 processor.

Does anybody know how good (or bad) will result running the AGTk2.4 and 
related shared applications on Intel box?
