    And lilstewart, if you are wrong, we will burn you at the stake! :D

    It will be a shame to lose a member of the MR community, but it won't be a total loss... I hear that's the best kind of fire on which to toast marshmallows for s'mores :cool:

    I love the explanation for releases, personally I base Apple releases on the blade counts of grass outside my apartment as I find that to be the best indicator. Currently I have no idea of how many there are and yesterday i had no idea either, which obviously can only mean one thing, we still have no idea, so don't bank, only hope at best for something to be released!!!!

    My point if i even have one is, expect to be underwhelmed and hopefully you won't be.

    Personally I'd like to see a final push of the PowerPC line for their Power lines, and speed bumps to all the systems. I'd like to see a gig standard in the Power series line as well.

    Don't get mad at me being a pessimist, I don't even need a new one but I want them to release new comps just as bad!!!

    Or a Airport Extreme A/V
    Or a VidPod

    Because I would buy one of them, but i'm not holding my breath for either

    The shipping dates on Apple's web site have been jumping up and down lately. I am surprised not to see the usual 5-7 or 7-10 shipping days before the update.

    I wonder why the 12" Powerbooks are not 6 to 8 days?

    Do you think they would be updated as well?

    that would be so stupid on there part if they didnt update. That would be letting one of the models that needs the most upgrade in the dark. Plus that would make Apple look like they dont care about there smaller pb.

    I wonder if they'll integrate a new trackpad that is pressure sensitive on both sides of the button ala Mighty Mouse. Could be configured as one button or two...

    They could make the track pad button pivot in the middle to give you left/right click. That would still be only one button but with two functions. :p

    That's hilarious! I'll have to use that kind of reasoning when I explain how I assign grades or something to my class...
