Apple (AAPL) is reportedly dumping Intel (INTC) chips in favor of ARM-based (ARMH) chips for its laptops and possibly its desktops, SemiAccurate's Charlie Demerjian writes. Apple's alleged move to ARM processors is expected to take place "as soon as possible," likely when 64-bit variations are available by late 2012 or early 2013. ARMH +5.1%, INTC -0.7%, AAPL +0.9% premarket.
