    Messiahtosh, take advantage of your Member title as Steve's Wife



    the uninformed might presume that is the source of your insider 'pillow talk' info



    don't follow the Robert Novak school of source-attribution. hard to repair after the fact.

    Do you function on some completely different plane of thought than the rest of the world?



    It's not censorship. My 'sanitized' version relays the same information that you posted, and does so in a way that doesn't jeopardize any relationships.



    Unfortunately, you've made it clear that you care about no-one other than yourself. It's not the first time, either.



    Forethought. Use it.

    (ahem) Now that that's resolved, and we have phrased the information in the desired format, what we have here that's genuinely new is that the displays are going to be updated Monday (or Tuesday?) as well.



    IMHO, this is very good news. I'm hoping we'll see something iMac-arm-like, and not horribly expensive. I'd really like to see the widescreen 17" display from the 17" iMac as a separate monitor at a reasonable price. I'd like it with a DVI connector and a power cord. The base could be a flattened iMac dome.

    Yep. And you seem quite hardcore and nonchalant about it too, Chris. That's no way to be, and it wasn't a decision of yours to make.



    "So be it"? Jeez, brute.



    Yeah, he "chose to leak it". But naming him wasn't required...just a spiteful, weird thing to do.



    Grab the reins a bit.







    Okay, veering back on topic: I'd LOVE to get a separate wide 17" LCD from Apple, for use at home. A total luxury purchase, to be sure. But one I'd really enjoy and make the most of!



    Although could "new displays" be referring to the LCDs used in the new portables (brighter, etc.)?







    Is it "portables with new displays" or "portables, in addition to new standalone displays as well"?

    Hey ... can we get a Moderator in here to attribute the first post in this thread to me, now. Haha.

    Whatever, youre right. I could have angered and jeoperdized people/relationships. My mistake, sorry.



    Does this mean I shouldnt post more info as I gather it? Haha, I'll post it, just without refering directly to who gave it. Is that ok?

    Thanks.



    Be obtuse when posting. Don't use names. Protect the source.



    Now find out more about those displays!

    Ok, thats fixed/over now, lets stop talking about it. I ****ed up because I was being pig headed and arrogant because i thought I had nailed some info for once. It shows i was being confident in my source, but in doing so ruining their credibility with the main source. Sorry, damn it. Wish I could do it over again.



    I'll post more as I know. Again, oops, sorry, my bad. Leave it at that and lets get on with it.



    New displays is the main thing, I'll dig for info.

    Bingo.



    Looks and smells like a snotty little kid, trying to show off for the "cool" kids with his "insider" knowledge.



    That's all that matters, isn't it - being "right" and coming back here and hearing "gosh, Messi, you were right - U R awesome, d00d!"



    I almost hope Dr X gets some flack for this, so maybe his son can tell all your other "friends" exactly what kind of "friend" you are.

    Holy smoke take a valium will you. He said he was sorry so lets leave it with that. Don't get me wrong, I also believe that it's important to protect the source.

    I'll gladly take one if you got one for me



    Otherwise, I'll just say my reply was composed before his apology, when he was still on the "oh well, it's not my problem, if he gets nailed, so be it" bandwagon.

    Fair enough, sorry for the flame. Looks like you learned your lesson, hopefully not at a cost to your source.

    Good Work Messiahtosh. It nice to see people sharing a bit of info. I didn't think they would release a G5 PB or dual proc either but it does like the type of comment that could have been passed on without giving too much away.



    Dobby.

    Just to add some info, the Apple Store now shows 3-5 days for shipping all iBooks & PowerBooks (except for the 17" - 6-8 business days). It has been consistently "same day" for most of the models until now. The displays are still "same day".

    Man these threads suck of late. No one has any inside info.



    Hey, a buddy of mine who's Dad dropped acid with Steve when he was 20 said that new displays are coming soon.....



    At least kormac and a few others offer something interesting to talk about....even if they are just guesses.

    Not to mention the design is more than three years old. Er, there's a mention.
