According to the rumor, Apple has passed on the Arrandale processors because they feature an integrated GPU. The rumor claims that Apple is asking for a version of the processors that has no integrated graphics.

 

Presumably, this request is to make things easier on its discrete GPUs like the NVIDIA 9400. Apple has used custom Intel CPUs in the past the MacBook Air used one.
