Apple is not really a great example, as they
control the entire animal, and there's more
margin in the high end. 

Here's a question for Matt, will dual-core
designed chips (as opposed to chips with 2
independent cores on once chip) be used on an UP
OS as a single core? Say if I wanted to use a
dual-core chip on Freebsd 4.x in UP mode since
SMP sucks wind? Or do the cores designed as
dual-core with the shared caches require that
both be used?
