    Here's mine: iMac colors. I think a black one with the chrome apple would look really cool.

    Seybold

    I think Seybold, as it is a pro oriented show, but if not then by Macworld Tokyo. With the iMac going to a G4 chip, I am sure Apple has something in the wings to wow the pros. They will announce it when they are certain that they can meet the demand. From what I have seen, I am betting on faster G4's 1.2 to 1.6 ghz. I don't think the G-5's are quite ready for prime time yet. However I am always open to being surpised. Interestingly, if you check the RC-5 stats page at http://n0cgi.distributed.net/speed/query.cgi?cputype=all&arch=2&contest=rc5
    you can see some interesting stats for a 7500 (G4) running at 1065 mhz and another running at 1600 mhz. Both show as G4's, but the speed and numbers are impressive. Possibly developer or apple research machines?

    rc5 speeds

    The 1066 and 1600 are probably just confused dual 533 and 800 users

    This better be it!!!

    If Apple doesn't get the G5 out by MW their future will look bleak!At least a speed bump is necessary by then.

    quicktime will obviously a new quicktime and imovie, imovie needs an update i think.then the seybold will have either a:speed bumps for powebook or b: g5 with a. and the tokyo will have a g5, thats mainly a promise or the global airport which probably wont happen. But powerbook g5 wont appear for 2 years, it will be updated every 6 mothns by 100 mhz,and this fall ibook with a really fast g3, over 1ghz,. then whenever the expo in fall is will habe a new device. Oh and if nothing else at seybold, i think 10.2 would be there. Every expo apple updates things with speed bumps or screen bumps and one new thing. so thats what my mac expos are. But this time next year i hope to have a new newton from apple, that would kick ass

    :D indeed!

    that baby is driving me nuts!!!

    i dont think we will speed bumps for g4 powermacs before a g5, therefore g5s sooner rather than later. as far as powerbooks... certainly a bit far off to think about but... i think sooner than most of us expect. the g4 powerbook took so long because of heat issues, i cant imagine the g5 being too much hotter than the g4 so im hoping we will see a g5 powerbook sooner rather than later.

    Re: rc5 speeds

    Seems a bit strange though, that the dual 533 is faster, and the dual 800 is twice as fast as the 867, when we all know they are not...

    If G5 at Tokyo...

    Apple never released anything big at Tokyo, just updates... so if the G5 comes out at Tokyo (which I think it will) it will be the first BIG thing released at Tokyo...

    Just saying... :p

    it's a possibility...

    I feel we are going to see something later this year.....whether it be a revised G4 w/breakneck speeds or a G5.....

    till July...

    Hear Hear!

    The only problem with the availability of a $1,500 cinema display would be that it would make the choice between a new iMac and new tower all that more difficult.

    My guess is
    Seybold: New Powermac G4s
    Tokoyo: New Digital Device
    MWNY: G5s and updated TiBooks

    Seybold

    I think that Apple's going to release new PowerMacs at Seybold, because it is a pro-oriented event.

    G5's or G4's, Either way, it's cool.

    sjestus -

    May your theory (or fact, or whatever you believe, I'm not going to get into it with you) fair better on this thread than the last, albeit the entertainment factor was high. Best o'luck to you that your prediction finds a happier "home" with this lot.....

    But I digress.

    After more hours of p*ss-poor attempted research effort than I ought to have put into it, my speculative bet is on another Ti powerbook speed bump at Toyko (I wouldn't personally hold my breath for a whole 1GHz). Couple non-rumor site tidbits stumbled across seemed to point in that direction, and I'd love it to see what a Rev C holds for the powerbook (not just in speed, either) before finally leaping into mac-land.

    And yes, I know the saying 'bout always waiting for the bleedin' edge - I think I'll survive just a few more weeks (maybe with papercuts, maybe not).

    cd
    back to lurking and resigned to another 2 mos or so of Wintel 'ell

    500 posts = custom avatar kid

    new displays huh? whatever happened to all the rumors about new displays at mwsf? werent we thinking we would get a 19" lcd and lose the 15"?

    i agree a g5 in tokyo seems unlikely but and apple could certainly have g4s in the imac and powermac for some time bu i got to tell you when i first heard that apple put a g4 in the new imac i immediatly thought oboy here comes the g5. and i think apple knows that is the reaction most people will have. i cant imagine them waiting until ny to give us what we are holding our breath for... on the other hand i just cant imagine apple unveiling the g5 at a macworld other than mwny or mwsf.

    o and as far as pda go... we all want it (well thos eof us who count), none of us expect it (well the reasonable ones anyway), and the pda market and current hardware situation could not be better (well actually it will only get worse which equals now is better than it ever will be). and as far as getting over it... i think most of are "over it" as far as us expecting it anytime soon, but that doesnt stop us from imagining.
