Their bread and butter has always been rooted in tight configuration control. You do know that they are currently running on Intel chips, don't you? Before that, they ran on Motorola chips. They had to move to Intel chips, because they couldn't control the heat from a G5 chip in a laptop. Imagine that, having to re-design your entire product line because of a technical problem a parts supplier can't solve!

There's the real reason for developing their own processor line. They will be able to control all aspects of design, engineering, and production.

I'd expect these new Macs to behave very smartly.
