  • Quote: Originally posted by shetline Of course, much of what's "Pro" today will become standard-issue over time, but for the foreseeable future, I expect nearly all of the following features to be Pro-only, with maybe a small number of surprises:…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Digital Disasta I hate how the back of my desk gets tied up with all sorts of crap. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Get an iMac.
  • Quote: Originally posted by shetline I might have to settle for a 13.3" MacBook, or settle for going back up in size with a 15" MacBook Pro, but I'd be making a tradeoff between portability and features which I don't want to have to make. I …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Aquatic Discontinuing the 12" PowerBook would probably be dumb. It sells great. So why axe it? MacBooks are not a replacement for the 12" PowerBook. They would "axe" it because a G4 based notebook is 2-3 times s…

  • Quote: Originally posted by Robin Hood iBook's were only upgraded a couple of months ago. So were iMac's.
  • Quote: All I really want is wide-screen for the 12". Everything else would be a pleasant bonus. I don't know if Apple would make a widescreen smaller then 13.3"
  • Quote: Originally posted by BRussell Why "save PowerMacs?" Are you saying PowerMacs won't be updated before they go Intel? That doesn't make sense, for all kinds of reasons. PowerMacs are likely to make the transition to Intel last, and PowerMacs…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Gon Add mini-DVI port and that would be a great laptop. The 12" PB is roughly what the iBook should be, and not anywhere near what a Powerbook should be. Mini-DVI would be nice, however I guarentee that they sti…
  • Quote: Originally posted by 1984 I don't put much faith into ThinkSecret anymore. Their reliability has been going down lately. Where is the iPod mini with the color screen? Also, isn't this exactly what happened just before the iMacs were upd…

  • I don't see iBooks going much below $999, nor do I see processors being higher then 1.33/1.42, because then that would cannibalize the low end powerbook sales. They will probably get nvidia go5200 64mb vid cards, and I highly doubt they would introd…
  • It's not that 32mb is low (I mean, it is), but it's more that it would be useless for a machine not to be able to run core image. A lot of people say its rather minute, like you just miss out on some transitions and stüff, but at the same time I cou…

  • how about 'the computer formally known as G5?'

  • I'm just impressed that in 5 years a version of OS X built for intel never leaked, or that no one was ever able to run it beside Apple.
  • Perhaps Apple will do a throw back and have upgrades installed through their warrenty program. Imagine being able to send a machine to Apple, and two weeks later you get your machine back, upgraded, and still covered under the warrenty. Obviously th…
  • I'm sorry, but wouldn't it make far more sense to have a 10" ibook then a powerbook? That would be like taking a corvette engine and dropping it into a civic. The heat will be ridiculous, as many of you have pointed out even the G4 12" gets hotter t…
