    We can only guess what is going to follow the current model of PowerMacs.

    As for why they may be offered on the Powerbook, I would think that because the prices are rather high compared to the medium prices of the Rev. B models people would not want to buy a high speed Powerbook. So extra add-ons are included in your purchase, probably to make consumers think that they will get more out of their money's worth.

    I also noticed that there are rebates on the Apple iPod. Now you can get a 10GB for $400 with a rebate offer. I don't think that it is for anything major, but I do like to see lowered prices on Apple products that are kind of expensive compared to other similar products.

    Again, there is a lot of speculation as to what will be hosted in the new PowerMacs. But most likely there will be no G5s.

    it would only make sense now that we've seen the rumor for 1.5 Ghz PowerMacs...

    but I wonder why they chose the 5 gig portables??

    btw...bobindashadows...u can send the tif over to me and I'll convert it for u if u want... ;)

    you can easily convert a tiff using Preview

    Just FYI, you can open the .tiff file in preview, then you can easily export it to .jpeg, .pict, .bmp etc formats.. cool..try it

    it's a hardware rumor because it sounds like we're about to receive word of something....NEW...

    Apple's strategy now is to clear out old hardware right before announcing something new...usually by promoting a freebie or with price drops...

    we've already seen price drops take effect...and now they are giving away free stuff with purchases to gain interest...

    I think we're going to see new PowerMacs soon...

    just my take on it anyway...;)
