There are several other manufacturers (Samsung, Dell, etc) at a similar stage 
with their Yonah laptops, so you'll be seeing those on sale soonish too,

Yonah is basically just x86, it's not gonna run any PPC software (unless you 
use an emulator like QEmu on Linux / Windows, or PearPC, or Apple's own 
"Rosetta" if you're running OS X).

Eventually (but possibly not straight away), Yonah systems will have the VT 
extensions enabled, and you'll be able to use Xen to run Windows XP on top of 
x86 Linux on your laptop (or whatever...).
