    when the ibooks get updated (probably in a week or 2) the powerbooks will probably also be updated so that the ibooks aren't almost as good as the powerbooks

    That is correct, only Steve Jobs knows the actual answer. I wouldn't at all be surprised if the PowerBook wasn't updated until MWSF, Intel Inside.

    If they update the powerbooks with ibooks, hopefully next week, what do you think will be changed in the 12"powerbook?

    Speed bump? Graphics?

    12" and 15" (combo)
    will probably have 1.67GHz G4 processors -- Upgrade graphics to 128MB?

    and the 15" SuperDrive and the 17" will have a 1.80GHz - 2GHz Proccesor

    Could someone speculate on what sort of pricing the updated models would be introduced at? If it's any higher than the current pbs, I think I'd rather go for the bargain....

    Hehe, I'm hoping this is the case. But it's more of a superficial I don't want my PB to be topped out by some new PB. I like having the "top of the line" for a bit :)
