    so...
    does anyone think that the powerbooks will be updated to a decent spec (dual core processors/2 GHz+ single g4 processors etc) before xmas/spring?

    I would like a powerbook to replace my powermac, but I alread have a dual 1.42 g4 machine, and I don't really want to downgrade on speed... especially as the g4's are super slow compared to the g5's out there...

    or should I just wait a whole feckin year till the intel Macs come out??

    cheers
    Niall

    I'd guess that you'll probably see a 1.8 or something before the jump to Intel, but who really knows.

    No inside information, but I personally think Intel Powerbooks will be announced at MacWorld in January. You heard it here first...
