Apple Computer on Friday scheduled a press event for May 1 with CEO Steve Jobs, sparking speculation that he will unveil new Macs or announce plans for retail stores.

Thinner iBook, Apple retails stores? Hmm...

the iBook is heavy compared to the titanium g4

let's shave a pound off the iBook but still keep it durable for young students and clumsy people

New iMacs can't *possibly* come at this event -- that's gotta be Macworld NY.

As well, I don't think the Apple Stores are close enough to being ready to roll for them to be announced...

I figure DVD Playback on Mac OS X, iBooks, speedbump to towers/cubes, maybe?......

Last week two stores which most of their business is macintosh closed. Both on Santa Monica Blvd near Beverly Glen, one was Compu America and the other I forgot the name of because they already took down their signs.

But this must be a sign of a new apple store coming to the Los Angeles region.

Although I am sad to see apple friendly stores close, but in reality they stunk. Beyond selling the mac's their service quite bluntly stunk. and their software selection stunk with even higher prices.

so, I welcome a local Apple branded mac store with great selection. why? because sometimes I love mail order and sometimes I want to drive over and try out a program before buying.

I think apple stores are going to be a good thing.

There will definitely be new iBooks out there soon, because Apple doesn't offer them in its online shop anymore ('temporarily unavailable').

All I want is the ability to burn in OS X.

When I was given the advice as a child to never assume what I read to always be true, I now understand why. The name of this forum says it best... macrumors. Let me offer you factual information, rather than rumors. My name is Reuben, and I am the internet director of Compu-America, one of the supposed apple stores that shut down on Santa Monica Blvd. Although our competitors across the street did go bankrupt, our business has never been better! Because of our rapid growth we are locating to a larger warehouse that can accomodate our business needs. Our business plan has altered through the years as we no longer accept retail walk in sales, we rather offer our customers the most competitive prices over the internet. Our web address is still, http://www.Compu-America.com. As I said earlier, we are still the most competitive reseller in the United States. Please pay us a visit and make your own educated decision, and follow my advice to not always believe what you read...do your homework first.
