so that ruins my hope of a macportable. But maybe the new ibook will be like my speculative mac portable.

EDIT:
…MacPortable will be something for the 30th. available in 5 colors (white, black, metallic black, platinum, and aluminium.) 11,13, or 15" widescreen, airport extreme, bluetooth, 802.11n maybe, wireless card (you choose between service like verizon/vodafone, cingular,etc.). It will be light(er) than the ibook and powerbook(MBP), 1" thin, switchable bay (like switch between superdrive, dl superdrive, and extra hdd, battery etc.) core duo available for 13 and standard on 15, core solo for 11 and 13 standard. It would NOT be a pro laptop so its not a MBP, but its more designed for travel then ibook (MB).…
… the MacPortable would have 6 hours of battery plus the expandable bay to 15 hours. And will automatticly turn off what your not using (if no airports are available, it goes into low power standby, etc.)
sony makes something SIMILAR to what i would want. If it wasn't for windows on it, it would probably be close enough to settle for.

Same accuracy ;-)
That is fairly accurate... as its fairly probable... thus meaning that powermac_daddy's supposed information is fairly accurate.. is that what you meant?

I have a buyer for my iBook now at a very good price. I wish the iBooks were out so i could upgrade and sell off my iBook. I don't really want to be laptopless for a few months but i also really can't turn down this offer.

I got one!

The new iBooks came out today and I got one!!!!

Anyway... do we have any reason to believe that this information is accurate?

Ohhhh boy... I hope this is true and confirmed soon... my funds for a new laptop came up sooner than I expected... I might just buy a MacBook Pro since I'm too impatient!
