Google Translation:

Many concordant rumours imply that the APPLE range would be deeply altered very soon.
It should be the case as well for the machines general public, as for the range pro.
APPLE seems very in a hurry to finish some with Mac OS 9.
However, certain configurations of the old range could still remain in versions OS9 bootables. Their price would be readjusted consequently

Original text in French [le texte original en français]:
De nombreuses rumeurs concordantes laissent entendre que la gamme Apple serait profondément remaniée très bientôt.

Ce devrait être le cas aussi bien pour les machines grand public, que pour la gamme pro.

Apple semble très pressé d'en finir avec Mac OS 9.

Pourtant, certaines configurations de l'ancienne gamme pourraient subsister encore dans des versions OS9 bootables. Leur prix serait réajusté en conséquence.
My translation [ma traduction]:
Numerous concordant [which means "similar, agreeing," etc.] rumors imply that the Apple [product] line would be profoundly changed very soon.

It should be the case [as in situation] for the consumer machines as well as the Pro [product] line.

Apple seems very much to be in a hurry to finish some [pronoun en is referring to the machines] with Mac OS 9 [as in final product cycle with Mac OS 9].

However, certain old [product] lines' configurations might remain as versions that can boot Mac OS 9. Consequently, their price would be readjusted.
My intepretations is that rumors imply that Apple stuff would change very radically [cough, 970, perhaps] and it might even be the 970 in both pro and consumer machines. Apple does indeed want to kill of Mac OS 9, but want to keep current computers for people who want to boot Mac OS 9, but because it won't be updated most likely, the price would be affected.
