    It just had:

    Slight bump in clock speed
    512 ram
    40 gig hd
    64 meg graphics card
    Non-wide screen

    I've been waiting for a while now.... I would be happy with that... All I really wanted was an increase in Graphics capability.... but was it worth the wait? ugh.... i would say yes!!! :D

    I wouldn't have been disappointed if they didn't update the iBooks.

    Yeah, that would be fine, if at the same price. But at this point, I'm probably buying a PC laptop this weekend, so its likely too late for me.

    I agree, the only thing I'm really waiting to see is that graphics card... I don't mind spending a little extra for RAM and a better HD. Although, standard would be nice. :p

    At least its not a **total* repeat like some other posts, not that my 30 or 40 posts makes me some kind of authority figure around here.

    Anyway, in response, yes I would be very disappointed. Only because it would mean that they might not have to rush out the new PowerBooks, since there would still be somewhat of a gap. After waiting this long, I couldn't not feel let down.

    I don't understand why everyone hates speculation and thoughts about the up-coming Macs. I love it. No, I don't start threads, but I come here a couple times a day to see what all the new thoughts and ideas are. Good fun!

    In regards to the question, no, I would not be disappointed. That seems like it is a possible update to be honest. Truthfully, I don't think it could be much bigger than what you suggest in that opening post.

    Duff-Man says....I don't think anyone here "hates" speculation....but when we end up with countless threads all about the same thing, with people responding with the same response in every thread, it becomes a bit of a pain to weed through all the duplicate threads. All I am saying is that we do not need a new thread for every possible permutation of what may transpire in regards to new iBooks....oh yeah!

    This depends on price. I would like $100-150 price reduction as well.

    No, that'd be fine with me. I tend to think we'll get maybe one more bundled feature instead of a price drop. Maybe BT standard.

    So did you end up cancelling your order? Or do you still have an order in on the old units?

    that would be pretty sweet. if apple does do something like that in the future they would be forced to use celerons tho... :eek:

    I hope this ibook has a better LCD than on the ones that are currently available!!!

    Why is everyone so insistent on a 64MB update? That won't make the crappy R9200 any better! I'd like to see a Mobility 9600 put in there, with the PowerBook 12" simultaneously updated to the Mobility 9700.

    Just bumping the 9200 to 64MB nothing, except slightly bumping the FPS in texture intensive games (which will still run horribly slow).

    It'll become a "Powerbooks Next Tuesday?" thread. But don't worry my other thread covers that (Ibooks and Powerbooks Next Tuesday?)
