    OK, we here on the east side have exactly 1 hour and 5 minutes untill midnight (according to apple's network time server), how many different thoughts/rumors about the new Powermacs can be crammed into 1 hour? I'm leaving it up to you all. Hey eye, do you think apple's going to release the iWalk tomorrow morning?:D

    Apple's gonna ditch the computing world forever and come out with the iToaster. It's going to be part of their new strategy "The Digital Kitchen Of The Future":p :D :p :D

    I think Apple is going to cut off the screen to the iMac, put in a processor daughter card and an AGP slot and voila! The successor to the Cube, the iDome. :D

    ON the low-end we have everything from dual 867s to dual 1.2s on the high everything from dual 1.25s to dual 1.6s. We have pc2100 (266) and pc2700 (333). We have 1 dual procesor (its late and im spelling processor wrong) 2 dual processors, and duals across the board. We have 1.4s at the high end and 1.5s. We have in excess of 1.2 (maybe 1.3?) We have bluetooth. We have hypertransport. We have usb 2.0 and firewire 2. We have new mice and keyboards with bluetooth? with 2 button mice? with scroll wheels? We have ati 9000s and 9700s. We have tis standard. We have 17, 19, 22 and 23 inch monitors with price drops.Widescreens across the board now. We have new imacs up to 1ghz. We have superdrive emacs. We have new tis with ddr and clock speeds of up to 1ghz.

    But most importantly we have tens of thousands of anxious mac-users waiting for the arrival of a new powermac

    amen-i will now post for the next 55 minutes to keep me awake untill midnight.

    Dual 1.6s are SO not gonna happen... I would say i would buy you all one if they announced them its so unlikely.. but i couldnt afford it incase i was wrong =P. The ABSOLUTE highest it should go to is dual 1.4, but dual 1.25 sounds more reasonable to me. I am expecting standard 512mb of DDR 266 on the higher models, i dont think we will see DDR333 but it is ofcourse a possibility. I think the Radeon 9000 will likely be the default graphics card, and the 9700 will more than likely be an upgrade option. I doubt we will see new superdrives in this wave, but that too is possible. Gigawire is an almost impossibility however. It is also very unlikely that all 3 models will be dual processor.

    BEFORE you flame me for having a PC, lemme tell you that I kinda, sorta, like it.

    Knock, knock
    Come in!, Oh, hi Dr. Jobs.
    It's time for your medication Ed.
    Oh, okay.

    for those who look around, spymac said that through the search function you could find some dirt, and it actually worked! it sayd powermacs are 1699, emacs are 999 and powerbooks are 2199, but imacs are the same.

    bah. www.yourdailymac.com has included the predictions of thinksecret and macminute. I knew I couldn't trust those fantasy specs they put up earlier. The far-fetched specs are still there...

    So liamcow, r u waiting for a half hour or 3 and a half?
