Now that the imac's have G4's, the ibooks are looking a little weak. I want to get a new ibook but a G3 at 600 Mhz is just to slow. Its fine for now but in a years time it will be very outdated. My 3 year old lombard has a 400Mhz G3!!!! If the ibook got a 800Mhz G3 (FX) then it would be more interesting..., but as apple is optimizing OS X for the G4, the ibook should have a G4. Does motorola have any new version of a portable G4 in the pipeline? The current G4 in the Ti is very weak and far behind the desktop versions. When I bought my lombard it had the same processor speed as the Powermac G3's. Maybe apple should have kept the G3 a little longer until the portable G4 was developed a bit more, then we might have already had a 1Ghz laptop?!?
