The new Powerbooks and PowerMacs!!!!

But we won't see an Apple camera - or at least, if we do, I'd be sorely dissapointed...

Looking at the floorplan, booth 338 is the largest booth at PhotoPlus Expo.

Whatever they're announcing tomorrow at noon eastern time, it will be interesting.

Someone in another thread just located Apple stock numbers for two new PMs and 15" / 17" PBs and Price Points of 1999/2999 for PMs and 1999/2499 for PBs. Does not sound like much of an upgrade for the books and more of a "we'll see" on the PMs. Could be dual cores across the board, but probably single-dual on the low end and dual-dual on the high end (since the price is going up). Not sure what the middle might hold.

Cupertino the heart of MAC
IphotoPro

This morning Jobbs called Bruce the CEO of Adobe. He infromed Bruce that tomorrow they will be releasing iPhoto Pro which will be a mild competitor with Photoshop. Dont believe me if you dont want to.

If true, sounds a possibility of shooting yourself in the foot with your biggest software supplier (outside of yourself ... hmmm) ... maybe not so dumb afterall. :D

I'm all for some Apple photo type goodness. I only bought an iPod when the Camera Connector/iPod Photo came out.

Then again, Photo Booth on the new iMac seems a tad silly. Although, I am totally jonsin' for a new 20" iMac.

As for PM/PB updates, i only care for the rest of my fellow mac users.

Nice floorplan

Wow, looks like Apple has one of the biggest booths at the show. Nice cad drawing of the floor plan. To bad it was drawn on a windows box. :rolleyes:

Who should I be yelling at about the fact that autocad is not available for the mac? Apple or Autodesk?

Yell at Autodesk. It's their fault.

Actually, I believe Apple (Reserve #338) is THE biggest booth at the show. Means one of two things ... lots of new stuff ... or Steve just like to LOOK big to keep people guessing and he is willing to spend a bit of Apple's $6 Billion in cash to do it. ;)

Nice Photoshop job, 'cept for one minor detail. Is it just me, or does that touch pad seem to be a bit big compared to the keyboard. Apple gets new patent for ELBOW TOUCH PAD!! :D
