    Has anyone heard anything about when Powermacs might get updated? Will they most likely be folded into the seemingly mid or late april Tiger release or has anyone heard that they will not come until WWDC?

    They are due. So I think that the Power Mac will be updated between now and WWDC. If the predicted dual core will be used, then it's more likely that Steve will personally announce the new Power Mac at WWDC.

    Yeah, consensus is that it should be between now and WWDC. With how long it has been, I hope it is a significant revision and/or with significantly better pricing. Another thing is that we're likely going to have to wait for some time after we order our new systems to get them in (though hopefully not as bad as we saw with the 2.5).
