    Apple is giving $100 back for Ibook purchase.
    I say we are going to see at least a bigger screen on those little sucker!

    Dude....... take a f--kin pill

    What flew up YOUR shorts? Apple's pattern has a discount preceding Rev in every previous case. If you just bought an entry level Mac not 2 months before Macworld yer a sucker. If you were ignorant and only recently discovered the release, get over it.

    what?

    I'm not agree with you, well, i dont understand why are you saying "****er" about it. For myself, the ibook is very cool... some of my friend told about the small size of the screen, but when comes the time you work on it, it's not that bad. By the way, do you know when it gonna be release, and do u have some specification about it ??? i want to know more about that !

    I don't see what the problem here.
    I saw apple's move as a sign of an upcoming release, of a new Ibook. Maybe with a larger screen.
    You have to relaxe guys!!!!

    Another thing; Isn't cool that Powerlogix as released a upgrade G4 for the G3 PowerBook!

    Harmoni

    Take a look at the Harmoni iMac upgrade by Sonnet. Firewire for the rev A-D. BTW, not biting YOUR head off....rekras needs to check his ego at the door is all.

    I'm always amaised to see upgrade like those coming out for our Mac. It woouldn't happen on a PC.
    you would never see upgrade for a Laptop, or a all -in -one Window product.

    HARMONi

    I can't believe we are still seeing NO Harmoni! They said to expect it 4th quarter, but I believe this is wrapping up!

    I can't wait to breathe new life into my 'classic' iMac. And I sure hope the reason they are delayed is to ensure iPod compatibility with the Firewire! that has got to work!

    500Mhz rev. a iMac 'DV'

    I love it!

    about the iBook

    Hmm. wonder if the Quanta order of LCD screens was for the next gen iBook rather than a new LCD iMac.

    anyone think the order was large enough to sport both?

    I don't remember the number of the order that was reported. 100,000????

    only a couple weeks now

    there will not be bigger screens on the ibooks

    that's partly how they keep the cost down

    besides-the common ibook user doesn't need a larger screen

    and i agree-SHUT UP

    There will be larger screen ibooks in the future (march maybe). The order was for 15" I believe, not suitable for ibook because it would be roughly the same size as the powerbook! IF the ibooks screen is increased it will be a 13.1 or 13.7" screen no bigger.

    New recruits

    Looks like Spikey and Monkey have a new follower: rekras.

    Oh good. More random rude comments that make no sense. :)

    Where's spikey been, anyway? did he quit macrumors?

    Wasn't the iBook...

    Just revised in Novemember? Didn't they speed bump the models???

    If they did, why would they bother introducing a newer model 2mo after???

    Idiots!!!

    The $100 rebate is probably done to help the sagging computer industry!

    Re: Wasn't the iBook...

    Here in the uk the build time of systems from the on-line store has increased from 1 day - 7 days for the ibook in the last few days?

    I can't help but to think it's simply too soon for a major update with the iBook...

    I'm thinking we're definitely going to get a new iMac & possibly new G4 or G5 towers...

    but that's it...

    however, I've been know to be wrong at times!

    how about ibook in colors

    i know this sounds stupid, but i bet the options for some colors still would help sales

    personally i think a flower power G5 and ibook would sell very well and a dalmation tibook would be the **** for all time...what do you guys think?

    Have to disagree with you on this one Jef. I think Apple did a fantastic job with their mulit-color approach back in 98, but thats where it should stay.

    Apple has a much more sophisticated, semi-professional look now with the midtone greys, whites and silvers--much like the auto industry has. (Remember the lime green Mustang? Im glad most higher end cars are now black, white, silver, and gold) I think they would be taking a step back in time to re-use their old color scheme. Its not innovative.

    Wonder what Apple's next design move will be in their G5 model? (whenever it comes out) Im predicting the first-ever glossy black Apple tower. Kinda like the Pismo's, but glossy.

    G5 Colors

    For some reason when ever I think of G5 I imagine a computer similar to the cube but in a burning orange approaching a red.

    g5

    i had to gas up ten minutes ago and i saw a purple/maroonish mustang, was that stock?

    if the g5 were butt ugly, i think most professonals would not care too much anyway since the darn thing is always under a messy desk somewhere and the graphics pro is more interested in meeting the deadline

    plus most of them have an ugly beige sony monitor on their desk because of the crt's still superior color critical precision

    who ever thought of beige mini-towers, and why did that color catch on?

    ...not to mention, why are the pc makers still using that shade of beige still? at least sony and hp try something new with purple and grey and that is better than compaq 5000 series and their beige...yet it's still the pc world's number one selling and top rated computer box

    Colors

    Maroon Mustang? Yeah, I think that was stock. I know they had a bunch of goofy colors 3-4 years back. I dont know for sure though.

    > plus most of them have an ugly beige sony monitor on their desk because of the crt's still superior color critical precision

    extremely true. No LCD's can color synch with good precision.

    Wasnt the Apple the first beige-colored PC? I think the average boring consumer feels 'comfortable' with beige. If it aint a boring gray box, then it is just a toy. it doesnt work 'hard' unless its boring.

    I like the Blue SGI's and the Black IBMs. They look nice. Still, nothing has topped the Apple. COmpaq has tried, but nothing matches the simplicity and design of the high-end Apple.

    Dell's got a nice looking black box setup for their higher end series...

    and I do have a boring beige Mitsubishi next to my G4!
