“Paul S. Otellini, head of Intel Corp., the chipmaker famous for its alliance with Microsoft Corp. and the Windows operating system, is expecting delivery of his new Mac laptop any day now. It’ll be his first,” Mike Musgrove reports for The Washington Post. “Otellini might be the first guy at the top of the world’s largest chipmaker to buy a computer from his company’s longtime neighbor in Silicon Valley. He doesn’t know for sure. But it’s certain that he’ll be the first to own a Mac with an Intel processor inside.”

“Otellini once headed up Intel’s marketing department, and he isn’t afraid of stunts to promote the brand. One week, he’s on stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, helping colleague Sean Maloney perform a magic trick to introduce a new processor. The next, he’s in San Francisco, wearing the white ‘bunny suit’ of a chip factory worker onstage at Apple’s trade show to announce that the new Intel-powered Mac computers would soon start shipping,” Musgrove reports.
