Sore at Apple's choice of Intel chips, a cabal of AMD processor fans have assembled a short video clip, featuring Apple CEO Steve Jobs as Darth Vader, killing-off the PowerPC.

It's in the style of Star Wars: "It seems in your anger, you killed the PowerPC," the moderately diverting video says.

"I couldn't have. She was alive. I felt her!" Jobs cries.

Apple claims its move to advanced 65nm processors from Intel puts its computers at the forefront of the computer industry.

The new MacBook Pro is advertised as being four times faster than the preceeding PowerBooks, while the Intel iMac is reported to be twice as fast as its predecessor.
