Now that apple will be switching to intel, it seems it would be better to wait for an iBook. However, I will be needing one within a few months. It would be better to have one sooner than later. I know there are a few threads on this , but how long should I wait for them to be updated. I have read that without the updated Graphic Card, I won't have the ripple effect but also that it will become obsolete faster-could you go into more detail about that? This, combined with the fact that apple switched to intel seems like if I bought an iBook before they're updated, a lot of newer software won't work as well. $1000 is still a lot of money, and I don't want that to go to waste. Any suggestions?? Also, what event were the 4G iPods released at last year in July? Could this be a release date for the iBooks this year? Thanks!
