And I can now begin to worry lol. I see they are mid cycle... I don't want a wide screen, don't want a first intel either. Do you guys think there will be another update before the above happen? Was this a good time to buy? I got the 12'' ibook, 1GB ram, 80GB hard drive. I'm replacing an ancient HP Pavilion notebook from '99 (wouldn't even go online anymore). I'm really excited, this was one crazy generous gift from my grandmother. I still can't believe it. Dying for next week! Thanks for any thoughts!!
