    ...that next Monday will feel like the longest day.

    I've had a Rev A. G4 PowerMac for 6 1/2 years and decided to get a new Mac this summer. I figured June-July around my birthday I would treat myself. Then they pushed back WWDC. So the last few weeks has been going by sooo slowly. I can just see this week and weekend getting unbearably slow till Monday brings it all to a virtual stop. Of course everyone is saying that Tuesday won't bring much more than a Leopard preview and Mac Pros and that we may be lucky to get revisions to the iMacs, MacBooks, and Minis at Paris. Even then the Mini will only get a slightly faster Yonah, and still only have 64mb shared video. So I guess I have to hope that WWDC brings a $1400-$1800 mid-tower with expandability, dedicated graphics, etc. for those of us reluctant to go down the all-in-one road.

    I just want my new Mac already!

    I doubt we'll see that mid-range tower, but it would be nice. Maybe they'll shock us all and provide a mini with a GPU option. :cool:



    I can live in hope, right? :p

    Portland has better bars. And if you spend enough time in them, you forget about beaches.

    Ok, I get it now. Bit slow...:eek:

    I predict that we won't see a mid-range tower - just Leopard, the Mac Pro and maybe a few little updates.

    No worries, it's 1:18am here, I'm on mental dial-up at the moment. ;)

    Yeah, I don't think we'll see the mid-range tower for a fair bit, like maybe holiday season. Of course, I know nothing of the market.

    My predictions:
    A Mac Pro with Yonah chips,
    An upgraded blackbook (they are being pushed on the UK refurb store loads)
    Upgraded minis
    Leopard preview (already confirmed)
    And possible small speed changes to the imac and macbook pros.

    Er, no...

    Woodcrest yes, but Yonah? You want professional Macs desktops based on now-outdated mobile processors?
