Hi all,

I have noticed that my local retail store has discontinued all ibooks in preparation for new models in feb... does anyone have any idea on what the new models will be...

    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.
