    1)G5 DP running @ 20GHz with 2TB of Ram for $999. (Just about as realistic as an iPod with Palm OS and iPhoto functionality for $400

    12 inch iBook with a G4 and DVD only for 1299. Don't need the CDRW, don't need a combo.



    I need a laptop badly but I really don't want a G3, I want it to last longer. I can't afford the TiBook, so I have to wait for the iBook to get the G4 or find a good deal on a refurbished Ti.

    prosumer/gamers iMac SE



    17" LCD

    133 bus

    7200 rpm HD (80gigs?)

    Geforce 4

    superdrive

    extra usb port and firewire port on side

    g



    but since i just bought my iMac, they can wait a year or two before releasing this



    iPod2/iPad...maybe, but already have a nice MP3 player and never really understood the need of a handheld....guess it is just one of those things that if you have you love, if you don't you think the person who does is a geek (i always think of handhelds as todays pocket protectors).

    That all depends on how much you think it would cost.

    A 19" LCD from Apple, or maybe the 23" if the price is reduced from the current 2499.

    Right now nothing. I just bought the Dual 1G.



    That doesn't mean I wouldn't want a G5.

    An iPod update either a lower priced 5GB or a 10GB at the same price. (XM radio would be cool but not necessary)



    An 800Mhz PowerBook with superdrive - won't happen though.



    Oh,and some of that gum. Probably just the gum, actually.

    If I can get the <a href="http://www.macmall.com/macmall/shop/detail.asp?dpno=356928"; target="_blank">FireFly FireWire 5GB Drive for MAC</a> for $240, that Palm OS iPod for $400 doesn't seem too unrealistic. Besides, everything on our wish lists is coming. It's just a matter of how long we have to wait.

    800 MHz PowerBook G4. Don't care about the other specs as long as it's 800 MHz or faster.
