    In all likelihood there will be no G5 notebook. Because of the architecture shift, traditional Mac update cycles will be pretty much irrelevant for a while. Whatever you do, don't buy until after Tuesday :D

    Tuesday is MacWorld San Francisco, one of the biggest forums for Apple to release new products. I'd wait if you can manage it. While I don't expect Intel Powerbooks on Tuesday, there may be some sort of timeline given. I'd expect them within 6 months. The G5 Powerbook is never going to happen with the Intel switch.

    This coming Tuesday is kind of special because it's the MWSF keynote. Apple have a tendency to layout their overall product theme for the year there. We know that some kind of Intel hardware will be released in the first half of the year.
