    So now we all know that Macbidouille posts abour the 970 specs and performances were right.

    Some on this board were quite insulting toward them (actually just because this is a French site)

    It's time to write here your excuses and applauses...

    That's the site that was jumping up and down screaming that...
    I have no excuse for my behavior in not really putting too much faith in some of MacB's claims. I know it's rather shameful.

    Boy oh boy, you don't even want to know what I though of the chances of the PPC 970 making it into the PowerBook first. :eek:

    Actually, MacBidouille wasn't 100% right. I'll cover it in the roundup, but...

    they claimed there were built PowerMacs back in May. That's clearly not true.

    that being said, they do get some credit - as a fair amount of their info was accurate... but not all of it.

    well the machines are ready now and were released when they said they would be, i'd say those are the two most important aspects and they covered them

    MacBidouille was right about things that could have been guessed, and were completely wrong about 970's being in production, being this, being that. I'd say 50% of what they said was true, and 50% of what they said was wrong. I think many of us could have at least guessed on the speed of the processors that would be released, although nobody actually got the specs right, not MacB or anyone else.

    Speaking of rumor sites, www.macwhispers.com was REALLY wrong. They said the leaked specs were wrong, and the G5 Powerbooks would be announced.

    there benchmarks were right on
    it is entirely possible they were right about production and apple simply still has work to do on 10.2.7 and to sell out the g4 1.25.
    they were also right with the mdd. and preview 1.6-1.8-2.0 units.
    admit it they no whaat they are talking about.

    well, maybe they already started producing them and there will actually be more than a couple dozen boxes ready when they are supposed to ship in august (hey, it is coming up).

    We don't want to have a '17"PB experience' again, do we ?

    My guess is the demand 'might' be high for this one :p

    They were wrong about production. They aren't in production that are about to enter production. If they had access to a unit it was a prototype.
