    I think they'd better. The TiBook is in serious need of an overhaul. It needs to be atleast 1Ghz to try and keep up with the wintel laptops 2.5Ghz+ P4's. I know mhz isn't everything, infact far from it, but, when you consider most x86 laptops use these hight speed AMD's and Intel's with DDR-RAM, high-end portable graphics and now even with DVD-RW's, Apple need to do something to justify the hefty price tag of the TiBook.

    Edited for typos.

    Well, yes and no. But I think Apple's next product updates will be this month with a PowerBook and iMac update. Next month the iBook will be updated. In January, we will see some BIG much-needed upgrades.

    Cheers! ;)
