    Does anyone know if the iBooks/Intel will be released anytime soon? I just purchased an iBook/PPC for school since my old laptop weights 49 lbs (exaggeration) and has a "wonderful" battery life of 57 minutes (NOT exaggerated). I hear from random people, "Oh, you should have waited!" and yada yada yada. Any thoughts on this? I am primarily using this iBook for word processing and simple internet tasks to take around with me during school. I have a pretty good desktop (Dell PC) that I use primarily at home. Thanks you guys!

    I am sure majority will tell you...

    If you need it now, then get it. If not, then wait. I don't think we will be hearing too much until spring time. For your needs, it sounds like what you got is perfect. I wouldn't worry about it. If you're always waiting for the next best thing, you will be waiting forever since technology changes so quickly. Be happy with you purchase, the ibooks are great.

    ThinkSecret say possibly March.

    I reckon April.

    We'll see who's right.
