The normal customer just looks at what the ad says, and looks to see what numbers are the biggest or what so and so said is best. Most people wouldnt know such a huge hardware change was made unless it severely impacted the users experience
or it was heavily advertised like apple did when they switched to Intel chips

I don't think Apple is that stupid though. I highly doubt they can convince Adobe to release their creative suite for ARM, and without them Apple is just a brand for people who don't know how to turn their computers on. Even if they keep their workstations x86 they are going to receive even less software support than they do now without a mainstream component.

They just want large markups on cheaper hardware.

it'll be a good and bad idea... I could seem them trying to get into the notebook/mobile market as some stated. Something not too heavy but not pansy like the iPad is now. Of course I don't think they will abandon the Intel x86 side either, too many people use them for video/photo or audio.

I wasn't talking about transmeta and transmeta is all but dead.
I was talking about IA64's implementation of x86 emulation via a software layer.

shouldn't be too hard for Apple to do something similar... THEY CONTROL THEIR OS. Not everything has to be blazing fast and Apple has a long legacy of using emulation to get the job done.

Then there's apple's new app store. Imagine a requirement of everything being required to be EVERYTHING compatible.
