    Hey everyone!

    I figured I'd start this thread as a way to combine everyone's wishes or predicitons for MacWorld 2006.

    Personally, I want a new Apple Cinema Display (to compete both in price and functionality with Dell's displays!)

    I heard they're gonna sell Frontrow for $79 and include a remote and USB adapter or something like that..

    $79, that seems like a lot for a program that really doesn't do all that much!

    I would just be happy to get some details about the new Intel Macs. I predict that the Mini and iBook will be the first to move to Intel because the consumers of those products will not be as concerned with the processor as "pro" users of other Apple products will be. I'm probably completely wrong, but we'll see what happens in January!

    Just means i have to get a USB hub for my powermac now :/

    Personally speaking... 80gb iPod, pretty please. And further price reductions on Cinema Displays.

    Predictions? Intel something, maybe Powerbook, iBook or Mini.

    I confidently predict iLife 2006 will be launched.

    (And I'll quit while I'm ahead).

    Front Row could probably be a part of iLife. It brings together everything quite nicely for viewing and listening. A remote and adapter could be optional.

    Anyways Front Row on a Mac Mini is all I want out of MWSF '06.

    I predict that Steve will wear a black turtleneck and blue jeans.

    I wish that he wore a red shirt with a hot pink suede blazer and purple corduroys as well as one of those colorful umbrella hats. Oh yes, don't forgot the walking cane. And white tap dance shoes.

    :)

    iLife '06
    intel iBooks
    intel Mac minis (???)
    Preview of intel PowerBooks - later ship date
    Front Row on all macs - remote included
    Updated Airport Express and Airport Extreme Base Station

    one more thing...

    Five anodized aluminum tickets will be placed inside the boxes of five Macs (1 iBook, PowerBook, Mac mini, iMac, Powermac)

    The winners of these anodized aluminum tickets will enter 1 Infinite Loop.

    Your destiny awaits.

    I'm hoping that they'll add a spreadsheet to iWork. That would be enough of an incentive for me to finally get rid of Appleworks.

    I reckon it's pretty safe to assume iLife and iWork '06, and Intel iBooks.

    I hope they launch Intel iMacs - I'm planning on buying one in February anyway, so it'd be great to be bang up to date.

    price reduction to the 30" ACD would make me buy one ^_^

    Why can't the Powerbook G5 thing just go away and DIE!?

    I'd like to see some progress on the Intel transition, hopefully with something being introduced. It'd be nice to see what's coming with Leopard and maybe larger iPods.
