    I've done some research on this motorola chip but I have failed to draw any real conclusions about this chip...

    Is the bus speed expected to increase compared to previous G4's?
    Is it a dual-core G4?
    Does it draw the same amount of power as previous G4's?

    And lastly, do you think the next revision of *books will sport this processor at close to 2ghz?

    Please post any thoughts here!

    I myself would not mind a 2ghz G4 with a 400mhz bus at ALL!

    I find no more G4's in the pbook. I see the next rev to be G5. Which the numbers found in panther.5(Powerbook 7,1 and 7,2) could be confirmation of the G5 in the next pbooks. I only see the 2.0 Ghz G4 in the emacs(when the imac gets faster) and the ibooks( when the pbook G5 gets faster). Freescale is going to be pushing harder to get there chips in Macs since the transition of the G5 is here.
