    As DigiTimes reports Apple will "soon" release a 14" widescreen iBook and a 15" in 2006.
    This proves my theory that soon there will be no 4:3 displays anymore in Apple's line-up. I'm betting my money on a 13" widescreen Powerbook as soon as they go G5, leaving only the 12" iBook and the emac with a 4:3 display.

    It would be good if iBooks got 14 inch wide-screen (1152x768?)

    But I doubt they will make 15 inch iBook...

    Yeah, the thing that is weird is that the 14" is supposed to come out 4th quarter 2005 and 2006 already the 15" iBook? This would only make sense if they needed a bigger enclosure for a G5 for example but then why alter the 14" until 2006 at all? I suppose a 14" widescreen ibook makes sense, the 15" half a year or a year later is just weird.
    Oh well here comes the speculation.

    I think a 15" iBook makes perfect sense if Apple releases a Powerbook HD. (higher-resolution display)...
