the new line probably wont be released untill 5-6months from now anyways...and ddr would definately be nice.Originally posted by solvs
There won't be any changes anytime soon. Maybe a 2x DVD-R, but otherwise there probably won't be any big changes for at least 5-6 months.
Since pixel density affects the cost of the LCD panel, it would still make for a much more expensive machine.Originally posted by BenderBot1138
I may not know anything... but I would send pizza's to the Powerbook team if they were to put High Definition Displays on Powerbooks. The video systems can handle it and it's a very moderate cost difference to implement the change in the manufacturing process.
If Apple began implementing High Definition on all it's displays, for example on a Powerbook, would you be willing to pay an extra $300-500.00 for the high end model? I'm really interested in this. I see it as strong marketing point to distinguish yet further Apple from it's competitors by continuing to extend the quality differences in high end offerings, and marketing quality is a critical point when squaring off with the more sucessful, but less inovative and polished non-Apple competitors.Originally posted by Nipsy

Additionally, while 1600x1024 may be available in the future, it is unlikely you'll be seeing 1920x1200 in a Ti, as the costs would be enormous, and the pixels may be too small for users with glasses/contacts
Anything other than titanium will up the lbs. That will suck. However, I believe Apple will address the case concerns due to poor Airport reception and durability.Originally posted by cubist
... white keyboard and display area on the inside; chrome areas when closed, with a transparent (clear) outer casing. Shiny chrome and clear, rather than the frosted look of the icebook. It'll still have a propensity to scratch, unfortunately.
Pure speculation of course... Actually I don't see how anyone could make a more beautiful laptop than the TiBook. Sure, it's delicate; Apple could make it more rugged. Stainless steel, perhaps? It's definitely in style for kitchens.

Yeah, I'm hoping for the same casing change. I'm totally happy about anything else. Well, except for the AirPort reception maybe...Originally posted by Jaykay
Well, i have to say, id like all the things mentioned here, but what i want first is a change to the casing.
