A fried of mine (a former PC user, I might add) is planning on purchasing an iBook to replace her old huge Dell laptop, and to use on her summer travels. Being the local mac-pusher that I am, I'm helping her buy one. There have been lots of rumors floating around about new iBooks coming out soon, and so we thought it might be good to wait for the new ones to see if a) they are really cool, or b) the older (but still really good) ones drop in price. I was hoping that they might announce the new ones at the news conference today, but that didn't happen. My friend is taking off for the summer in two weeks, so it needs to be purchased before then. Do people think it is worth it to wait, or do most people think that the new iBooks won't be announced until later (such as MWNY in July) and so we should just go for it now? Thanks for the input.
