MacBook Pro Inbetween Intel iBook

Rumors say that the new iBooks will be about 200 dollars cheaper from what i heard. Im not sure if that is the truth, but it wouldnt make sense for apple to offer a 800 dollar laptop and a 2000 dollar laptop. Theres too big of a difference in price. I would imagine them having 3 laptop models.
iBook- affordable, simple, but fast and reliable
the a MacBook - higher performance, speed, goodies, look, etc.
then the MacBook Pro

It wouldnt seem likely for them to just have you either have a 800 dollar laptop then 2000. The fill in would just be a MacBook 1000-2000 price. and still keep the iBooks for the affordability and the competiotion between the dell 600 dollar laptops.

The new iBooks aren't going to have Core Duos. They'll just have standard Pentium M chips.

No they'll have single core Yonah. OSX makes use of features dothan lacks.
