    Don't like this bit from AppleInsiders report on Apple's financial results:

    Seeing as it jacked the price of the Mac mini considerably when it introduced the Intel versions, analyst tried to pry an answer out of the company about whether it planned the same course of action for the upcoming Intel iBook. Apple would not comment, but our gut reaction is that the $999 Intel iBook (MacBook) may not happen.

    I hope that the price will stay the same but since they might be using the 13" screen and iSight built in, I could see the price go up a little.

    Dual core
    iSight
    13" screen - hopefully higher def

    Yeah, the price will be like the Mac Mini intel - 10-20% more I think...

    the prices will probably go up, but this will be a great shame, as the current lines of macs have really good price points
