    Have a read through the hardware rumors and general mac discussion forums, there are already many threads on this topic that may help answer your question.

    Re: apple expo paris

    once again i hate to burst your bubble but you definately won't see dual G4 powerbooks for heat reasons and definately wont see a superdrive until they change the size of the powerbook or release a slim dvd burner, both of which would take at least a few months to develop. Paris Powerbooks would steal the glory from the new top of the line powermac. apple wouldnt do that, look for new powerbooks after new powermacs actually come out.

    listen folks the theory of apple releasing new computer hardware at every macworld has to end especially at the Tokyo and Paris shows. look for jaguar demos with ical and isync, and maybe another digital hub software update. maybe maybe a new LCD monitor or price drops on their LCD prices.

    would it be possable to put the power4 in the powerbook - with multipul cores could it be classed as a DP? - or is that that just too hot and power consuming to go in powerbooks at the moment?
