I read somewhere [don't remember] that the new server is just a side announcement, the real one will be an unveiling of a new apple digital imaging device? Hmmmmm.......



just a thought.

    From what I have read, the Ibook is a more likely running mate on the 14th. I just hope we don't wind up with a recount....

    actually.... even though I have no intentions [as of now ] to get a future ibook, it DOES need an update!!! *cough* g4 maybe?



    the ibooks on X is awfully slow! unless jaguar will fix that.... but either way, i'm sure it can't improve it THAT much, that's an architectural limit, not software



    they are dam nice lookin' tho imo, better looking that the powerbooks, not to say the PBs ain't nice

    What the difference in price between a G4 and a G3 CPU chip?

    A low power 7445 would be ideal for the ibook. 12" iBook

    600MHz 7445

    128MB RAM

    CDRW

    20GB HD



    12" iBook

    700MHz 7445

    128MB RAM

    Combo drive

    20GB HD



    14" iBook

    700MHz 7445

    256MB RAM

    Combo drive

    30GB HD

    I heard new iBooks, but they would be something along the lines of:



    600 & 800 MHz G3

    12, 12, and 14" Displays

    Possible resolution increase on the 14"

    256 MB ram on middle and top model on the motherboard (so max would be 768 instead of 640)

    Radeon Mobility Graphics 16MB,

    20GB & 30GB drives.



    Don;'t know how reliable that is, but hey, it sounds alright.

    Not so stupid considering that Matrox will present a big event the 14 may : <a href="http://www.matrox.com/mga"; target="_blank">http://www.matrox.com/mga</a>;



    Why not an Apple digital image device with the collaboration of Matrox. The matrox RT 1000 is an old stuff now, perhaps they have decided to do something better. Just a thougth.

    What can Apple bring to the table over and against the tough competition in this arena. I mean how is Apple going to out sex and out small the Canon Elph, for instance?



    I just cannot think of anything that Apple could dramatically improve

    I can understand the desire for new iBooks.



    I can't understand the spreading of rumors about a new imaging device based on such thin evidence.



    What's wrong with just feeling the joy in the May 14th announcement of rack-mounted servers. It's big. It really is. Nothing else needs to be announced to make it a great event (especially if the innards surprise one and all!).

    present a server and a new (consumer) iBook on the same day???



    Are you people nuts?



    That makes absolutely no sense.



    Apple is going to try to enter the Server market witha BANG... the announcement will be Server Server and only Server... UNLESS its NOT THAT important for them
