    Steve Is Getting Ready To Shock You All (Including Bill Gates)
    By Releasing New Models in one big hit

    Firstly The New PowerBooks
    The 12 Inch Will Keep The G4 but Be Released At 1.5
    The 15 And 17 Will Both Have G5 Processors
    And Be Layed out diffrently you will have processsor choices on both
    1.6 and 2ghz ...yes thats 2ghz

    Secondly the new imacs will have a big overhaul in looks (complete redesign)
    And have A base model of a g4 processor again 1.5 with a 15 inch screen
    and the new screens 19 inch and 23 inch will have a choice of 1.6 g5 (19inch) and 2ghz (23)

    new screens have been developed and are being made ready for shipment
    sizes 18 inch 24 inch and huthum........... 30 inches


    and last but not least the powermacs

    dual 2.0 will stay the same but the rest will be discontinued
    and the new ones will be 2.4 2.6 and the big 3ghz dual baby

    that sounds nice and dandy (if its true). However, what about a date or an approximate as to when these things will show up?

    I think I've heard these predictions somewhere else before. Was that you?

    A Lie!

    It's all lies, lies lies lies! :mad:

    I believe PlanB posted this very same thing in Apple Insider forums. New Macs going to be released on......

    Hmmm... Then soon after he posts another thread confirming his not being serious-ness :eek: PlanB does so in this thread

    This upsetted me because I too thought he was speaking the truth, PlanB, you got me too excited man... These updates need to come soon or the worlds comming to chaos... ;)

    Close the Thread. It's a lie.

    Quote from PlanB about the other thread he spawned on Apple Insider: "over a hundred replys to this bullcrap......tut tut tut, lock it up"

    Quote from Apple Insider Administrator about the other thread:
    "I think this is a good object lesson in what happens when you don't learn the self-restraint to avoid falling for even the most amateur trolls.

    If anything gives this forum a bad name, it's the wealth of people who just can't resist the pull of that hook moving through the water. Remember, kids, if you respond to a troll you've been trolled, regardless of what the content of your response actually is. The whole point of a troll is to rack up as many responses as possible.

    Let this be a lesson to you"

    bah, I'm hoping this is true. Remember when people shunned at the idea of a dual 2.0Ghz? I'm confident that Apple can deal with these predictions. 3 more months and it would have been a year since the G5 was announced.

    Apple has surprised us before with the RevA G5, what's to say that this prediction is any further off than than before. Apple has also let us down at the last two MacWorld confs. I'm sure they would have been planning something big. Remember, this isn't motorola.

    Every once is a while someone pops in to give a scoop. Sometimes it's credible, sometimes it's off the wall but possible, many times it's not what we want to hear but know it's probably true.

    And then you have crap on a web page.

    Certainly is interesting. 23" iMacs? haha! for about $3000. It might have been believable, except he forgot to include the dates which was the topic.

    The only thing that lends cred to this line of thought is that every product mentioned is either due for an update or at the end of the production cycle. I just went to the buyers guide and the only two products that are recommended to buy are the ipod and the Xserve. Everything else is ready to update. This usually doesn't happen with Apple does it? I am used to seeing laptops mid cycle when the new desktops are ready orvice versa. It just seems to me there are a lot of products that need to be updated soon
