I was very excited for the results of MWSF and it seems like not much has happend concerning powerbooks and ibooks. Did I miss something? I'm anxious to buy one of these soon...know of any big changes I should strongly wait for?

thanks

Powerbook updates were/are rumored and as they aren't too big, it was obvious that they won't be announced at MWSF. I'd say that we will see an PB update in the next weeks. Not so sure about iBooks though.

iBooks update to a spec closing in on PBs less than 3 months ago.

IMO, there will be no update to the iBook now until the PB is G5 or dual-core G4. That in itself will not happen until WWDC I reckon.

Minor update to the PB in the next week or two.

There are approximately a million threads on this, and the Buyers' Guide.
