One question you might be able to address, Andreas. Why does everyone discount the idea of Power7 being moved into mainstream markets? When Apple required something more advanced than the G4 level processor, the processors that were eventually designated as G5s were designed incorporating features from higher end Power systems. Even the mass market Cell architecture gains some power from similar incorporations.
If IBM were again to target a large consumer market, why wouldn't they base the product on their most powerful design yet? Isn't that sort of what they've done in the past?
