If anyone can speak Japanese, please go over there and translate for us, as my Sherlok translations sucks, but here is what he/they said:

October 11, 2002

¡ Notebook PC stand ZeroBeat sale
According to the information, a bird electron is the notebook PC stand which used the urethane foam of a kick-board material. ZeroBeat It is a thing that it ‚ð”_”„(ed). The cooling effect of a notebook PC is what it is [ a thing ] preeminent by using combining a portable interchange air conditioner.

¡ SuperDrive and new PowerBook G4 of Bluetooth correspondence
It is announced soon that it is based on information. PowerBook G4 being alike -- it is a thing that a SuperDrive model and Bluetooth are equipped It seems that furthermore, it is announced as new PowerBook G4, without adding a big change to the present Titanium case.

how credible is this?

I can't read japanese, the but the translation seems to make sense..

basically new Superdrive/Bluetooth Powerbooks coming... no change in the case. The same as what has previously been reported... so no real new info.

They don't have a known track record... we'll see in the coming weeks I suppose.

I'm gonna give it until the 3rd week of Oct is over, then I'll give up and just buy a used PB 667 to hold me over till the new stuff comes out. But I'll be darned if I pay $3200 for an 800mhz G4, I don't care how sexy it is.

Wouldn't you be KICKING yourself, though, if an 800MHz Ti was released the next week for the 667's price? :eek: That, to me, is definitely worth the wait. We know they're due any time now... why give in when they're so close?

ah... the constant struggle... :)

It's always hard to say.... personally, I've always bought my new macs after a new release.... but it depends how much you need that powerbook right now.

Ok, here it is...

I translated this myself...
----
According to the sources, Bird Electronics has released a notebook computer (laptop), ZeroBeat, which is made out of 'Urethane' foam from 'kick board' materials. By using a mobile internal cooler, the cooling system of this laptop is said to be close to perfect.
----
According to the sources, the soon-to-be-released Powerbook G4 will have a built-in Superdrive and Bluetooth. Also, the design of the machine will not change dramatically, and it will be released as a new Powerbook G4.
----

There. I don't know what 'urethane' or 'kick board' is, so I left that as is. Hope it helps.

The original Sherlock translation was pretty good.

oh my god, superdirve and bluetooth?

who ever thought of that as a rumor for the upcoming powerbook:p

macworld had a thing on bluetooth being the future for the next generation macs and there must be dozens of posters here calling for a superdrive in a powerbook

these things probably all need to happen before we see either a dual G4 powerbook or, later on, a G5 powerbook

i don't want to wait til late-2003 or early-2004 to get bluetooth and superdrive as a new thing when the G5 powerbook most likely will be announced, if they even call the post-g4 laptop that
