    check the buyer's guide... other than that, i don't think there's much info. on upcoming ibook revision. some news said altivec added g3, but i don't think there's been much news lately... i *think* PB will be updated before iBook... so who knows how long to wait...

    i've noticed that you've been "waiting" for practically a month now... i realize you want to "maximize" your "return" for the investment, but it might be about time you consider just buying the machine and start using it..?

    says they are approaching the end of a cycle (november or maybe even october)

    no one knows the new specs...could be a new case could be just 100mhz again could be apx or bluetooth....things are unclear as of now. Threads like this should be in buying advice forum too.

    I'd expect the eMac motherboard to be fitted in the iBook chassis. It's the most logical progression. Enough speed, G4, and Airport Extreme to make it a worthwhile update, yet enough older technology (PC133 SDRAM) to keep the cost relatively low. Such an update would help streamline Apple's motherboard line.

    I wouldn't think that they would put G4's in the iBooks until something else from the product line goes G5.

    True. But it does make you wonder about the wait for the Powerbooks.

    Pro line: All G5
    Consumer: All G4

    Makes sense, but I doubt we'll see that happen any time soon.

    They might just bump the Mhz to 1Ghz, add a 133Mhz bus as well as Airport Extreme. That might be a worthwhile update if they keep the current price points.
