    I hope they prove false. That would make the G5's rumor look better

    Well, I personally am a lifeless insomniac who's serious about buying a new PowerMac.

    Actually, if it happens, I think it will be a press release sent out to MacCentral and a few others announcing the new towers at 10 am or so.



    How did they do the TiBook last year?

    What makes you people think they would be silently released on the web site with no announcement at all?

    1.) that's what they did with the powerbooks with a press release

    2.) the specs are a bit underwhelming if rumor is correct

    I could be wrong, but I really don't think we're gonna see any new PowerMacs today.

    Well, I hope you're wrong. In the absence of better judgement, I have already bought an Apple Studio display and sold my iMac because I am anticipating an entry level G4 with iDVD/SuperDrive being released any day now.



    I guess that I could go ahead and buy something now, but I'd be pissed if I did that and something else was released the next day.

    Don't forget Apple is on the west coast. If there's going to be anything new today (which I'm not convinced there will be), it will be afternoon on the east coast.

    It would probably be a press release if all we're getting is 1.0GHz...nothing to brag about...in fact, making a big deal about it would probably be more likely to make a laughing stock out of Apple than staying quiet. So...I'm thinking about 8 or 9 AM PST - which means there's still an hour or two left before any announcement would be made.

    Maybe the end of the day, so as not to disrupt the Stores (closed) and the website (lower traffic)?



    Who knows?

    ? 867MHz PowerPC G4

    ? 128MB SDRAM - 1 DIMM (I'll buy my own RAM)

    ? 40GB Ultra ATA drive (Add a second HD myself)

    ? Apple SuperDrive

    ? NVIDIA GeForce2 MX w/TwinView (64MB SDRAM)

    ? Apple Pro Keyboard - U.S. English

    ? Mac OS - U.S. English

    ? Gigabit Ethernet

    ? Two USB ports

    ? Two FireWire ports

    ? Apple Pro Mouse

    ? $2470



    This is the minimum machine I'd buy. I wonder what it will cost by the end of the day?

    Oh wait, we had these for several months already...



    I don't think we're going to see any bump anymore, it's too late already. Normally news are out by now, no matter where the company is located.

It's only 7:30 in Cupertino right now. They're not even in to work yet over there. I don't know if it's coming today, but just because it's 10:30 on the east coast doesn't mean they're not.

    I guess they could be waiting for Wall Street to close for the day, but that would only help the stock today if the response to the new PM wasn't good. Or maybe the rumors are just plain wrong and we won't see new PM any time soon.

    Maccentral had a note posted at 8:45 am for the silently upgraded powerbooks. It seems they (Maccentral) run East Coast time. So that would have been 5:45 PST.



    Of course, this might mean nothing.



    Or everything.



    Or somethng in-between.



    I love writing like Meader!
