    I don't think it was a silly question:eek: .....but thanks:mad:

    P.S. Fall of 2004 is a long way off:( Maybe I should just get an LCD iMac now....... the 17inch model looks pretty good.....:(

    well it hasn't even hit the powermacs... and who knows if it necessarily will.

    the earliest it'd come in the pmacs is this summer. with a possibility of a cycle later. or of course, not at all.

    i'd give it a year or so before it moves to the consumer lines....


    this would fit better in mac discussion probably

    i dont think you will see a 970 powered imac. i think you will see faster and faster g4 imacs and the 7457 showing up in it. The 970 will be for the pro line. just my guess.

    I'm expecting spring (best) - to summer 2004 release.
    Since powermacs are gonna be summer-winter the iMac can't be a whole year behind can it?

    Okay. I apologize.... that was arrogant of me.:( :eek: My Bad.

    The most likely timeline is:

    MWNY in xServe.

    Late 2003 in the Towers.

    MWSF 2004 in the PowerBooks (iBook discontinued at this time).

    May 2004 in iMacs.

    6 months from the towers to the iMacs? Not bloody likely, IMHO. I say IBM-powered iMacs with new enclosures at MWNY 2005.

    It's fun to dream, looks more and more likely that I won't be able to wait till the G5 970 is available. Think bright side let others break in the new PPC. :confused:

    all joking aside i think any of the powermacs and the high end imac are all terrific machines that should be able to handle anything you throw at them! Except a brick of course

    I think i'm going to wait till they bump the 17inch iMac one more time...... maybe to 1.4, or at least 1.25Ghz, then i'll get one. Also will get the 12inch powerbook when they bump it to 1Ghz...... hopefully won't be to long of a wait.

    really is going to be an interesting year when it comes to apple and the cpu situation. Just saw a post by sunbaked that showed the 7457 up to 1.3. I just dont think motorola is advancing and are satisfied with phones ,toasters and the embedded market.( computers is a whole another matter)would it not be awsome for apple to come out in 6 months with ibm's in all of their machines.
