AMD: Surf the net securely - use a Mac?

MacBidouille posts a french ad by AMD that asks users to surf more securely.

The picture shows a Titanium PowerBook (minus the Apple logo), which of course is a good advice, since Mac OS X is still without virii (although there's now a hand-made rootkit available - and no, it's not a virus...).

Or will we see the PB 7448?

Freescale publishes new information on the PowerPC 7448, MacBidouille has the link (French, but you'll find the linked PDF easily). Guess it all depends on what information is true. Our sources claim a) that Apple has a PowerBook with PPC 7448 ready, basically but that b) Apple could just skip this revision in favour of an earlier-than-expected (early 2005 instead of 2nd quarter 2005) PowerBook G5. Either way: Now is definitely not the time to buy a PowerBook.
