    Frequently the promo dates end near the end of a financial quarter. There's really no major Apple event occurring in that time frame to announce any major release, like a G5 PB for new, high-end PM.

    I see that they have promotions extending into April. Think that the Power Mac could be updated prior to WWDC, the last update was just announced at apple.com. If they do announce a G5 PowerBook, that would be a major upgrade and so think that Steve would want to announce personally at WWDC.

    Your right, but what if they are not releasing the G5 PB. They have frequently released speed bumps with little or no fan fair. Even if they went for the dual-core G4 chips that were making the rumor rounds a month or two ago, they may not feel its neccessary to introduce in an expo setting as I think they will reserve that for the G5 edition whihch would probably be the next revision. Not saying that they will release something on that day, just that a lack of event doesn't disprove it.
