What do you mean? They just came out with a new one. Other than a bumped CPU I can't see them changing much at all.

Here's what I know has happened:
1. Apple introed new iBooks at MWSF02 that feature a 14.1" display, enhanced battery, and bigger case (there might be more..)
Here's what I think will happen:
Apple moved the iBook to the lager screen and case to prep it for the G4 chip in May-July timeframe. I think there will be only one 12.1" combo model (possibly with G3 chip), a 14.1" combo model with 800Mhz apollo G4 and a version with a superdrive.
Prices? I guess:
12.1" 733Mhz G3 combo : $999
14.1" 800 Mhz G4 combo : $1299
14.1" 800 Mhz G4 superdrive : $1799
Also.. look for PB with 800MHz G4 chip very soon, and superdrive! I just wish they'd up the resolution on ALL their displays..
12.1" iBook : 1024x768 is ok actually
14.1" iBook : 1280x768
15.2" TiPB : 1600x1024-1080 (whatever works out to 16:10/9)
15" LCD on iMac and studio display : 1400x1080
17" LCD : 1600x1200
22" LCD : 1920x1080 (is that right?)

No way is the iBook going straight for the top model Apollo.
Ti PowerBook is likely to go to 667-800 Apollo at MWTY, maybe iBook 500-600MHz G4. NO WAY 800.
