It is a tough call. I just need to add a bit more moneyto get this Omega with a far more superior movement. but at the same timeI can't get the Mark 16. I don't see the need to get them both. When I have moreoptions. I am confused. Thanks for advices.

(sorry... please guys, you shouldn't have let me started...)Apple decides to go with Intel 80x86 CPUs for a few reasons:- Intel can produce enough CPUs to meet Apple's demand;- Intel can produce CPUs that are much smaller and with much less-power consumption, which again, suit Apple's needs (especially for MacBooks/Air)

The processor has never been unique or special to Apple which has used Motorola, IBM and Intel CPUs.A better Apple example is that Apple has leveraged two licensed software technologies to build its most important products. The BSD Unix operating system is the engine that powers OS X and has been substantially enhanced for unique Apple's requirements. Second, Apple leveraged an open source Web browser project (from Linux) to create Safari and the WebKit technology in the iPhone and iPad. In each case, Apple took these projects and invested heavily in them to make truly special and unique products.
