I doubt that. And even if Apple would do this, the resulting computers would be damn expensive.
Oh really? I don't agree

Or, for GBP50 LESS, you can buy an Apple G4 Mac with DUAL 867MHz G4s -
Dual 867MHz PowerPC G4

& 1MB L3 cache/processor
133Mhz System Bus
256MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM
60GB Ultra ATA drive
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX
56K internal modem
(plus, of course, onboard USB and FiewWire plus keyboard and mouse)
Personally i prefer the mac config for the money!
Oh and there will never be AmigaOS4 for a mac so long as Amiga INC/eyetech have their ridiculous hardware licensing rules.
I think AmigaONE basically sucks. Its nothing special. Might as well buy a cheap fast x86 motherboard. The amiga to me is much more than the OS. Maybe they should have made a x86 version of the OS. Probably would sell more copies then.
I think ill stick with my a4000 and laptop.
