    These are nice, especially the G5's and the new PowerBooks. These are also rumors but I think these are pretty believable configurations.

    16.3" @ 1280x1024 screen for PB G4? With that Apple's changing the form factor back to 4:3. That's dubious, I think.



    These specs sound sexier in French (infrarouge--the new Chanel lipstick)

    Babelfish translation of the site is much easier reading.

    the link of the english version does not work : i try to translate a few words :



    - lecteurs optiques mange disque : slot loading CD rom readers

    - sortie prevue en septembre 2002 avec disponibilite immediate: release prevue in september 2002 with immediate disponibility

    - carte graphique : graphic card

    - processeur : processor or chip

    - vitesse : speed

    - sortie : output

    - disques durs : hard disks

    - graveur : burner

    - ideal : read recommended (prizes)



    If you have another specific questions ask, otherwize it's too long to translate all this stuff.

    The CD-ROM drives in the low end iBook and iMac also looks fishy.



    CD-RW or Combo drives would propably be cheap enough at that time.



    Furthermore I don't think that even Apple knows the exact specs of a model six months before introduction.

    You made a good point here.

    Unless those specs are purely for education. That said, introducing (or shipping) new consumer/edu iBooks in September--a full 11 months after previous hardware boosts (14.1" notwithstanding)--is crazy (but this is Apple, I suppose). Classes have begun already.

    Well, if these specs are true, and the pro products are released in september, well, &lt;drool&gt;

    My girlfriend was head of PR at Panasonic UK until 2000, so she told me about stuff like this all the time.



    Specs on new devices are decided well over 12 months in advance. It isn't set in stone but is normally close to what is released. Apple will know what they are doing for the next 12-18 months.



    The Powerbook looks great!

    Yes. Very possible. G3 i Mac is CRT model. Why not throw in a faster processor, same price point for Ed Market and price point sensitive folks. Apple still does sells these you know.

    What's the context behind these predictions? There doesn't seem to be any explanation - is someone claiming to have gotten these specs from somewhere?



    They seem extremely optimistic to me.

    on a more serious note...all these computers have USB 2, which steve said he WASN'T going to implement...and USB 2.0 isn't even a real standard its just something intel through together to try and best firewire(which it doesn't do)

    and it says something about cache at 1/2 speed of processor(for the g5) making it 700 mhz and 800 mhz....thats a little bit wierd....maybe it was talking about RAM...but thats still wierd

    I'm skeptical about USB 2 and changes to the PowerBook (the aspect ratio and screen size, mainly). I wouldn't be surprised at two different sizes of PowerBooks (15.2" and.. say.. 17-18" (GOD would I love that! perfect for serious work, desktop replacement, and remote video shits)), a la the iBooks. USB 2 just sucks, it's very inelegant.. if Apple goes with it, there will be CONSTANT headaches about matching up the correct connectors and backwards compatibility! Don't even lead Apple to believe you want it!

    What on earth are you jabbering on about? USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 connectors are cross-compatible.



    Here's a news flash for the RDF'd: get this, Firewire 2 connectors will require an adaptor to jack into Firewier 1 ports! Thats right...take a look at IEEE specs.
