Intel-Based Macs To Have "Intel Inside" Logo.


In an event that is sure to be almost as disappointing to Mac users as the naming of the MacBook Pro, Crazy Apple Rumors Site has learned that Apple has lost the legal and marketing battle with Intel to keep the “Intel Inside” logo off of Intel-based Macs.

According to sources, while the Intel-based iMac’s “Intel Inside” logo will be placed unobtrusively on the back of the computer, the same logo will deface the top of the MacBook Pro.

Internal Apple images funneled to Crazy Apple Rumors Site show the MacBook Pro as it would appear with Intel’s logo.

As with the stickers it places on Windows-based PCs, the Intel logo on the MacBook Pro can only be removed with an acetylene torch.

In order to balance out the look of the MacBook, Apple is planning on adding a more palatable image to Mac users on the other side of the lid – the traditional Mac OS logo.

But that’s not the end.

Due to a contractual obligation on Intel’s part to Microsoft, all laptops that ship with Intel processors must ship with the Windows logo affixed to them. Therefore, the MacBook Pro will also feature the Windows XP logo.

Apple, in a counter-move, will add the QuickTime logo.

However, through a trail of contractual obligations too complicated to follow, the final image of what the MacBook Pro will look like when it ships may be too hideous for many Mac users to handle.

Apple declined to comment on this story, but several hundred thousand of those white, waxy sticker backings have been turning up in landfills near Cupertino.

  1. Eleventyith… and I make fun of all your names. How do you pronounce Nxxx, anyway, without any vowels? Or do you think you’re Welsh or something, and can make perfectly good consonants double vowels as you please?

    I hereby reclaim all x’s in the name of consonants worldwide!

  2. Oh yeah… where’s the Radeon logo? No MacBook can be without it! As a pretending representative of ATI, I hereby demand that this gross oversight be rectified.

  3. Thats what my powerbook looks like now.

    Except I can take mine off. I’m getting scared again.

  5. This rumor can be confirmed. However, what was omitted is the fact that under secondary lawsuits, the keyboard keys Q-U have lost their positions. They will now be replaced by symbolic representations of the seven deadly sins. Hey, its strange new world.

  6. YOUR PUNY SCREENSHOT LACKS THE UNSPEAKABLE HORROR THAT WOULD ACCOMPANY THE REAL THING! SHOULD ANY OF YOU MORTALS WITNESS SUCH HORROR IN PERSON, YOU WOULD CHEW YOUR OWN HEAD OFF AT THE NECK TO ESCAPE!!

  8. “Apple left off the ubiquitous “Mountain men love mountain women” sticker”

    Unless you are on Pokeback Mountian, or Brokeback or Bareback or whatever it is.

  9. Hmmmm, this changes things. Now I can’t use my Calvin-peeing-on-an-Intel-Inside-logo sticker.

    Well, I can always put it on the back window of my pimped-out ’97 Nissan Sentra.

  10. Intel stopped the ‘Intel Inside’ campaign several months ago, rendering the entire column nonsensical.

    Which, I guess, is actually the point, now that I’ve thought about it for, like, 2-3 hours…
