    A. Online Petitions never work
    B. 12" Powerbook is still for sale
    C. iSight will be added to the machines that they want to add it to, reguardless of a petition, its a feature after all.
    D. the info at Appleinsider is just speculation at this point.

    Petitions dont work. Theres a petition for apple to release os 8 for free, it has like 400k votes. Apple does what they want to do. Unless not getting rid of the powerbook 12" and putting in an isight significantly reduces their sales.

    You are short sighted. Apple, I'm sure, has a very cost related reason for 86ing the twelver, and putting an isight in an iBook would only make the Powerbook line and the iBook like closer, something apple needs to get away from.

    If you want to make a request of Apple, it might be more effective to ask Apple instead of getting a bunch of random people to sign some petition.

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/powerbook.html

    They don't have a separate page for the iBook at the moment.

    I don't think that the PB will gain iSight; it's a professional machine, and while the occassional business executive might need it for the occasional conference, it still seems to me to be more of a consumer piece of hardware. It's probably going to end up in the iBook if at all. There are security issues that come into play with laptops.

    As for plans to abandon the 12" PB, it will probably be dropped in favour of an ultra-portable model.

    Just my $0.02 (obviously...:p )

    I agree, Apple's not stupid and so far they've done a pretty good job of figuring out what Pro users need and what average consumers need. Sure, I'll be sad if they drop the 12" but they will have a plan for a new ultra-portable machine.

    12 inch is bye bye

    12 is, to most, to small for the average mojo. widescreen is the "cool" thing now, and 12 inches does not equal widescreen

    also petitions don't work

    and, whats wrong with isight? i think its great
