    Probably will be like many other announcements lately. We will find out here on MacRumors and apple.com. Do really think that we will see some new products. Mac OS X 10.4.3 is a real possibility. Also looking at PowerBook and Power Mac.

    Isn't the shipping time from the Apple Store rising to 7-10 days usually an indicator of a product update? PowerBooks are all still shipping within 24hrs.

    They will probably just appear on the tuesday at the normal update time, the online stores will close temporarily and return with the new products, as we have seen with the iBook and Mac Mini updates a month or two back...

    It seems quite promising that the Powermac's will be bumped but i can't see dual core's coming this year...

    Anyway i hope we see some of those Exciting Power PC products Steve promised were in the pipeline,

    I agree that there will most likely be updates before the expo. There really isn't a need to have a full keynote speech for a couple speedbumped powermacs or powerbooks, but a Q&A would be perfect for it.

    Now lets just keep our fingers crossed that they do something to the Powermacs... I want a new one...

    i'm not seeing much in the near future. The Nano was Steve's glory from the last few months from what I have read. I doubt he cared to update much else during that time and it's too soon afterwards to have done much else.

    Course, I could be wrong...
