    This post and the subsequent one by Powerjack (of MacWhispers) on Spymac's forums reveals that he believes Apple is working on an update to the 15" Powerbook and expects that the "the new model is within days of being released". Other details:

    Per MacRumors' sources, Apple had started working on PowerBook updates (presumably 15") in early January but they tend to have "at least" a 2 month pipeline historically.

    Damnit man... these need to be released now. I keep looking over at the g/f iBook 800 and thinking... "wait 'til I get the new PB and we'll see who is jealous..."

    please please please come out soon!

    Thanks,

    What OS9 applications are you going to have to give up? See, there's this thing called "classic" that you can use to run os9 applications in osX.

    Neat. eh?

    blech.

    OS 9 is a waste of my time. If I wanted unstable slow garbage I would use win 3.11 ;)

    If they're going to update, why not put a 1.4 GHz chip inside?

    If they're going to update the 15", why not put a 1.4 GHz chip inside?

    That would be great but it won't happen...the 17" has a 1Ghz.

    Same Ti body that would still boot OS 9 and the 1.25 GHz for the price of the 17" would be interesting... if it used DDR nicely. AE seems to be a bit unreliable (slow) as of right now on a 802.11b network, so that is not a big "feature" right now, but BT and FW800 should be squeezed in there.
