    Now I know this topic has been killed over and over, but I have more of a specific question that concerns my personal situation. I assume now that everyone thinks the next big update of the powerbook will be at the next quarters keynote at sanfransisco (not sure of what theyre called "MSWF?") Anyway if it does come out then(may?) will I be able to get it in time before I get shipped off to college that starts in the fall?

    I don't think we'll have a significant bump or re-design. So, we'll probably see an update that is not announce within a major keynote.
    I'm expecting a minor speed bump (as rumored) within the next 4 weeks.

    I'm expecting a bump by the end of January but nothing spectacular. I didn't expect there to be an announcement at MWSF because of the prior direction of not giving hardware updates at major expositions and recent history confirming that.
