There is a lot of talk that this last wave of PowerBook updates will be the last of the G4 line. That doesn't make much sense to me. While the new displays are nice and the better hard drives are very useful, the DDR2 update seems mostly for show right now. Now, the redesign of the motherboard for these new features might have been a leftover from the G4 development leading up to the decision to move to Intel, but what I think is that Apple is just paving the way for a few more low maintenance upgrades in the next few months. All the tricks Apple had in the pipe for G4 development that won't fly with the Intels will have to be flushed before the PowerBooks cross over. DDR2 and display updates are just groundwork. New chips have got to be coming, and dual-core might not be out of the picture just yet. Apple might be shoring up inventory so it can roll out one (or two) speed bumps between now and the Intels. Its good insurance too; should the Intels be delayed for any reason, they can just pop in one of there hidden reserve chips, satisfy the community for a few more weeks, and not waste any development resources. Still, I would rather Apple call it quits for the G4 right now so I won't feel bad about upgrading next week. That way they can shift their entire laptop division to Intel development and let the PowerBook G4 fend for itself. The G4 will be sacrificed on the altar of the Mactels. All for the greater good.
