I agree, but we have to stop setting ourselves up for letdowns. There will not be G5's in NY, there will not be G4's in iBook till after SF. The G4 is too much for a consumber laptop in a speedbump. It would require a total redesign of the mother board.Originally posted by SPG
If true Then damn.
Speed bumps are nice, but how sweet would a G4 12" iBook be?
CDR/DVD 40gig drive. $1500-$1600 That's my very portable dream machine based on existing components.
Ugh!!! Listen carefully, I want to be clear on this. There will not be any G5's in July!!!! It will be SF 2003 or later!!!!Originally posted by djniche
this sound about right for apples specs go
but very dissapointing if they are true...
g3 should be left behind with almost the whole line of G4's based
with G5 coming to the powermac in july (hopefully)
Now I can see that, but G4's across the board? Noway!Originally posted by mcrain
Spymac is reporting a rumor of an iBook SE model with a G4, however plausible that may be.
What with putting the real power only in the 14"? (More RAM, larger HD). Could they be trying to phase out the 12" by insinuating that it's "low-end"?
If they did that why in the hell would anyone buy a G4 667 Ti Book for hundreds more??????????Originally posted by Backtothemac

I could see a
G4 667 with a 14.1 inch screen, 256 MB, and 20 GB Hard drive for 1899.00.
Waddya think Mcrain?
I use my ice500 for FinalCutPro editing and it works just fine. I use an external portable firewire 40GB drive for the video. Works great, and when I'm over at my friends I just plug the drive into his Dual G4 and continue working... I bought the iBook because it had the combo drive and was in my price range (the TiBook was too expensive). I love the small form-factor and the 12" screen. I saw the 14" at MWSF and it was a frankenstein machine... They needed to put a 13" in the 12" enclosure not make it big and bulky to use a 14". The latest TiBook looks good though, but still too expensive. The iBook does need either a G4 or a QuartzExtreme compatible video card though...Originally posted by Quadari
Sure you can't do massive video editing, but if you're doing that, you probably shouldn't have bought an iBook. <snip> The best part about them is that they are Apples, small, and fairly inexpensive.
You can't be serious! Do you understand anything other than Mhz? There are a million other things to consider. Bigger screen. Higher resolution. Gigabit ethernet. Dual display-via DVI. 1 Mb of DDR cache. The iBook can't match that. It won't ever match that. You aren't going to see an iBook with those specs for a very long time.Originally posted by Abercrombieboy
