    Currently at the Apple Store for Education there is a $50 rebate on most iBooks. (Some are $47) Smells like new portables to me.

    I would be nice if it did get an update, but that would make me mad. I just got a new one like a week and a half ago (I would have waited, but I needed it for school). The Powerbooks need updating. Also, if they did ugrade the ibooks, they would be fater that the Tibooks, which is not going to happen. There could be a joint upgarde though.

    Welcome razekaze!

    I completely agree. I think it will be a complete portable line upgrade. Let's hope for at least 933mHz TiBooks but hopefully 1gHz.

    My guess:

    iBook 12"

    800mhz G3 or 700mhzG4
    32MB VRAM
    256MB Standard
    No more 14" model

    TiBook

    867mhz (lowend) and 1Ghz (High)
    64MB VRAM
    No SuperDrive

    14" is brought back in January as the SE model...with higher resolution and a graphite case.

    Probably off though.

    "Fake" DDR or the real thing? Apple's current DDR implementation would hardly make a difference. But I suppose Apple is bound to do it sooner or later, from a pure marketing standpoint. I don't see the G3 iBooks getting DDR though.

    I've been drooling for an iBook for awhile now, but I can live without it, so I'll give it a year and see where it is then. I sure hope they don't eliminate the 12" iBook, I happen to think a smaller laptop is better!
