    yay! hopes are high for ibook updates :)!

    15.4-inch widescreen iBook next year.

    Other rumours indicated that Apple was planning a Q4 ship date of a G5-based PowerBook notebook. i doubt that

    I don't think the iBook will be black in color as that is more for the Pro line. While the consumer line is more associated with white, or multiple colors like the older iMacs and iBooks.

    Yeah, I know but I couldn't get a decent color in PS. I admit I suck at PS. One of you more skilled have a crack at it... :)

    I still think they should go another round of coloured macs, with the same finish as the ipod mini...

    I think they will introduce colored Mac mini, cuz its basically the same design (metal wraped around plastic) as iPod mini and they will be silver, pink, green and blue, same as iPod. I wouldnt buy one though. Silver is best for the mini

    ( i have green ipod mini though :D )

    Can I put in a vote for no colours?

    White looks nice. Colours will make them look like kids toys.

    Surely I'm not alone..... am I?

    Oh no! I know you were just having fun. I love your colour choices. In fact, I had the urge to try to make my own "limited edition Tiger iBook" using Flash. See.....

    I was just surprised with the amount of people who actually DO want the coloured iBooks and I can't get excited about the idea. But I loved your colours. Sorry if it came across that I was bitching about that. :)

    That yellow one is making my eyes bleed. Can you imagine having to stare at that while actually doing work? Ack.

    Okay, I'm just procrastinating now. I have so much to do but can't be bothered! But I can honestly say if Apple released these then their "classy" reputation would be in serious doubt! I think we're safe though.

    colours would be fine.. as long as you still had the option of getting white or black.... afterall the black U2 Ipod looked cool with red accents..

    IF they DID come out with colours like the ipod mini, would it have a metalic finish too? that would look tooooo much like the powerbook... unless the powerbook went to carbon fiber or something... that would be neat....

    so... with all this aside... WHEN THE HECK IS THE IBOOK GETTING UPGRADED!?!!?!? :mad:

    I'd buy a black plastic ibook in a second. I'm bored of the white now, how its been rolled out as the acceptable face of apple products, its become too generic. Until they make a black one I'm looking for an old g3 black powerbook to satisfy that craving!
