Took them 8 months last time. PPC to Intel. Completely different architecture. RISC to CISC. Endian issues.

8 months, from the first Intel computer to the complete line transition.

My point is...nothing we predict here will have anything more than an accidental relationship to what actually happens. If they announce at WDC, there's a good chance engineering work is underway on almost the entire line. The transition has already begun, it just hasn't been announced.
