It's October! Rumors of new LCDs (10/1), new powerbooks(3rd week of October), new iBooks, new Apple digital lifestyle device...

What do you expect this month? What will be updated this month? What do you want this month?

Just a month long thread to funnel thoughts...:)

New Displays maybe... Probably powerbooks... maybe ibooks.. but probably not both.... No portable device.

it's entirely possible we will only see one thing above mentioned that will come out...and maybe even after the month of october

the ibook and tibook could use some modest speed and ram bumps but that may come at mwsf in 2003

though i can't afford it, i would like to see apple make a superdrive tibook that goes 1 ghz:)

The biggest news in October will be what ever IBM has to say about their new Power4 derived chip.....that will be the future of the Mac I think.

Nothing new will come out this month. The deal on the displays is over. No new displays. If anything, Apple will pitch a new incentive deal and nothing more.

you keep thinking that. how much would this 19 inch iMac go for? $2500? No one is going to pay over $2000 for an iMac and apple isn't stupid enough to release that. I understand the move to the 17 inch screen over the 15 inch, but why would apple go 19 inch just 6 weeks later?

The problem with people here is that they don't have a sense of humor

This is all based on previous rumors. Like I said, no one really knows for sure. ;)

Where are the new displays

I am guessing that since there is no update yet, there will be none today :-(

Very dissappointed:(

I guess I will have to look at the current "old" displays, as I need to get one.

Perhaps a continuing move towards the computer as appliance. Wouldn't you rather watch your DVDs on a 19" vs. a 17" screen. Suppose at some point the base might change to support big screens--but that might be a different product line--moveable vs. less moveable screens (wall mount with wireless video?)/machines. Perhaps in the business place you could have a big wall mounted display that would allow multiple machines to display images in an organized fashion via wireless--share a variety of designs by different teams in a meeting, share ideas from remote locations, etc.--woops, way off topic and probably a bit into the future, but something we would use. Ciao,

I am starting to think that we'll be seeing perhaps new screens before the end of the month, may a new digital device; but no new hardware until next year.

I know that's a sad prediction, but I think that we'll see some major upgrades some time next year.

that is of course if Apple wants to stay in business.

I'll pick faster PowerBook or update powerbooks. That thing needs an update. I'd like to see all most if not all of the product lines hit 1Ghz, but I'm wishing a little too hard. I'd be psyched for a 1 Ghz G3 iBook. That would be a no brainer. Big daddy desktop and a 1 Ghz ibook. You know IBM has it because it's listed on their site.

I predict product announcement on the 18th. Nothing to base this on, just a random guess.
