Just trying to see what my options are for how long I should wait. I really dont need a new Machine, but I want one. I started with an iBook, then it was all down hill from there. iPods, Accessories... a G5 iMac... I just keep wanting apple stuff sigh. So i am going to use my iBook as a portable machine for along time, but wondering about the new intel based Powerbooks... i know there is no set date, but is it Spring next year? or summer? I want to give my iBook to my significant other, but need to know if I should just buy her one for christmas... she always uses mine.. so just curious. I looked around briefly but only say that next year was the target, and this article was dated in july, so just wondering if anything else has been announced.
