... and hey! There is now a new PB with the 1.8Ghz Freescale 7448 listed in Apple store, at $300 more than the current 1.67Ghz model... :rolleyes:

I would say that there would be a TON of pissed off PB customers. Luckily, that is not going to happen.

I will try to reach that 500 mark.. in a couple more weeks :p

I suspect that might happen though, look at the usual PB line, traditionally there is a "good" model and a "best" model, but currently we only have a "good" model, leaving the performance throne empty.

Secondly I really don't quite believe that Apple would actually invest time and money to redesign the mainboard to fit in a new chipset and new memory bus.. what they might have intended is to fit it in, advertise this line on the merits of improved display and of course, better battery life... and then perhaps when the last update starts to fade away from memory will apple announce the new improved PB with.. yet more superior battery life, as well as better performance!

Well, it is just a thought :rolleyes:

That would not be necessary if you just remembered to remove dirty socks before going to sleep. You were, of course, referring to socks, right? :)

Actually, this posting does highlight the benefits and value of most other threads. ;)

I can certainly understand why. Dreams tend to have that affect. :D

The dream of generik, just won't happen though, just had an update.

If it does ever actually happen it'll be on a Wednesday, not a Tuesday. Apple updates on Tuesdays are soooo last year... :p :cool:

Processor is one thing. What kind of video card will it have?

Perhaps an owner of one of these new PBs could unsolder the existing 7447 CPU and drop in one of the new 7448 chips (you're a Freescale customer, say). Then we'll see if all these theories about the motherboard being ready for a 7448 are true.







Might be a good idea to back-up first. Perhaps keep a fire extinguisher handy. ;)

Next week: Swapping in a Mobility X850 graphics chip to release the power of the secret PCI-E interface.

Someone might have done just that.. one guy by the nick of teddy<something> apparently has a 1.92Ghz PB running on a 7448!
