    Are these Power servers powered with PPC processors like the old P5 that older Macintosh computers were built on?

    Apple dropped PPC processors (made by IBM) because they could get cheaper Intel processors for their MacBooks. It's interesting how that decision may be Apple's undoing. Imagine a future with Arm-based tablets (running Android) talking to IBM servers running PPC processors and linux.
