    I think Apple's attempt to move their desktops and notebooks to ARM will fail, and I wouldn't want to be on ARM in case that happens. Not that it will affect the family on mobile (no chance of that), but the higher end ARM designs could end up PowerPC'd.

    It's a feeling more than anything else. For one, Apple's move is very ambitious - probably too ambitious. I've seen a lot of danger signs too about Apple hardware over the last few years, how they now cut corners on components and build materials to shave money off, where once Apple was renowned for build quality. This, I think, has been responsible for their slow decline, that and a distinct lack of investment in MacOS which has now left them some years behind.

    TL;DR: x64 still seems the brightest prospect. Stay away from anything Apple does, they have the smell of slow death on them.
