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
7200 rpm HD (80gigs?)
extra usb port and firewire port on side
make the body a different color (quicksilver? smoke?) to signify it as a S.E.
$2299 (same price and specs as PM line, but not upgradible...but with lcd....)
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="
; 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.
