    Can any one make an educated guess as to when they will be updated.. or is it still pretty much anyone's guess at this point? I would like the curent 17" for around $500. That would be solid!

    Yep, it could be anytime but WWDC is a good bet, or even before.

    If they improve the screen resolution as well as the form factor, current screens should be significantly cheaper...

    I have a feeling that Apple is in the progress of updating their entire line.
    from the buzz going on

    http://www.macobserver.com/stockwatch/2001/04/19.3.shtml

    and the recent closure of a manufacturing plant in CA they could be in the process of renewing the entire line. So as far as Powerbooks or anything else it could be a matter of priorities, and this year of 2004 could see a total revamping of Apple in general.

    Yeah, I want some cheap 200-250 dollar LCD's...Perhaps I am dreaming, and perhaps I'll wake up soon, but I want this. The current ones are way too overpriced.

    highly unlikely
    even online, i haven't seen a 17 inch for much less than 400 and those aren't digital

    Exactly what I see happening, maybe not at WWDC (sooner perhaps?) It'd be great to have those before WWDC so that it can be used to announce the Next-Big-Thing™ from Apple.

    Sooner would be nice but the only reason that would happen is because i just ordered the Nikon D70 which has dropped my bank account a little bit. So now i have to save up a few weeks of work before any major computer purchases occur. If the PM update happens in the next 2-3 weeks i will be fine as i can still cancel my camera order (wolfcamera is waiting on a shipment from Nikon), and order the comp which i was getting in the first place.
