    Fairly obviously :rolleyes: no one here or anywhere (except maybe the Apple engineering labs/sales) can tell you when it will be out or what it will feature.

    At last, a man in the know! :) I do hope they move away from the white (even though I never get my wish). The specs will prove to be far in excess of my needs since I have never put either my first or current Mac through anything that would come close to a rigorous workout.

    Steve-o will announce it when, and only when, I say I'm happy with the machine, and am good and ready.

    Nah, I mean the 6th. That means I have something to do over my weekend - whinge about the integrated graphics - rather than hang around till Tuesday morning to get any new news.

    You are of course referring to the shipping date. SJ will announce it 01 April 2006 at 10:57, if his keynote runs according to rehearsals. The other day he got so carried away ad-libbing about the new ipod video, tablet, 50" displays, BT Mighty Mouse, Leapord's new finder and the MacGame Pro console with 900 Core Duos and 15 Crossfired ATI X1800s that he over ran by 67 seconds.

    Edit: I forgot to say that 90% of games currently on the market have been updated to run on OSX in Universal Binaries and will be available for download from the iTunes store for $199

    Nope. The 6th.

    1st is just silly. A Saturday? Not likely.

    30th Anniversary...Why not. Announce Friday afternoon so it still gets picked up by the weekend press.

    I've already got an Intel-processored iBook. It just takes some patience, a hammer and some chewing gum. :cool:

    If you want the same, send your machines my way.

    Weekend press is actually less than the coverage during the week. It's why Apple has typically released new products early in the week so that they get the tech coverage in the main papers and the w/e stuff is usually just summarised from the weekday stories.

    It's why a lot of the OS X point releases come out out on Fridays, to avoid the brunt of press scrutiny. You notice it even on the MR front page, the MacBytes section is dead on Sunday and Monday our time but springs back into action on Tuesday.

    You do realise I just pulled the date out of my arse. I think the 4th is more likely. The tuesday after the saturday anniversary.

    As you might have guessed, nobody really knows, but the 30th anniversary seems a very good guess. I'd say there is a good chance we'll see them then. But what will they look like? And have inside?

    Oh my god, the million dollar question!

    I'm in the market for a laptop right now, but I think I'm gonna try and wait until around 4/1 to take the plunge, just to see if anything cool gets released.

    Well, for the February 28th Event that Apple just held, invitations went out on February 21st. If they held a media event for the Mac Mini, iPod speakers & some leather, I think they'll probably do the same for the iBooks. So hopefully we'll hear about an Apple event being announced by the 28th or 29th of March...
