    .........on everything in the buyers guide, except the Macbook. Of course, this doesnt mean we're going to see updates soon, look at the iPods lol. Anyway, has this happened before - the buyers guide indicating everything needing updates?

    i don't know if it's ever happened before, but it is indeed interesting. obviously apple isn't going to update EVERYTHING at the WWDC but a lot of things are due for an update, such as the iPod and obviously the PowerMacs/soon-to-be Mac Pros.

    And for that which isn't updated, at least we'll always have Paris.

    The Macbook Pro only says approaching end of cycle, so there are two products that don't say Updates soon.

    Basically, no, I don't think this has ever happened before...

    But it seems to lend some credibility to Scoble's claim of "a dizzying amount of new products" being released by Apple in the coming months. (Weeks?) :) (Days?!) :D

    I think this is the order of product updates we'll see:

    1. Pro Mac Desktop (PowerMac replacement)
    2. Mac Server (XServe replacement)
    3. MacBook Pro
    4. iMac
    5. MacMini
    6. MacBook (MUCH newer than anything else in Apple's lineup)

    I can see the PowerMac update at WWDC for sure. Maybe the Server as well. The MacBook Pro and iMac in the next 4-6 weeks (Paris, anyone?).

    The MacMini and MacBook will probably stay on the current chips and just get minor speedbumps sometime in the Fall - perhaps an upgrade to the next gen Intel chips at MWSF.
