Hey guys, I was bored so I thought of some possible release timelines. To make things sort of plausible I made several assumptions: 1. Powerbook will switch before ibook does. 2. Powermac will switch before iMac does 3. iMac will switch before eMac does 4. eMac will switch mid-late summer to complement an upcoming school year. With these qualifications, here are some of my predictions: 1. Apple decides to switch their mobile lineup to Pentium M's first, before switching the high-end desktop G5's. Powerbook: Announced @ Macworld06 "1H 2006, ships by mid-april iBook: Announced @ Macworld06 "1H 2006", ships by WWDC2006 Powermac/xserve: Announced WWDC 2006 "in time for leopard", ship by end of 2006. iMac: Announced Macworld07, ships 1H2007. -WWDC2007 is strictly OSX Leopard business and dev switch progress- eMac: Ships before end of summer 2007 Mac Mini: Holiday season 2007 2. Apple goes high-end to low-end. Powermac, Powerbook: Announced @MacWorld06, both are out by WWDC 2006. xserve: Announced @ WWDC 2006, released soon after. iMac: Released "in time for leopard" by end of 2006 ibook: Announced Macworld07, ships 1H 2007. -WWDC2007 is strictly OSX Leopard business and dev switch progress- eMac: Ships before end of summer 2007 Mac Mini: Holiday season 2007 3. Apple starts with mac mini getting Pentium M, then follows a "Mobile in 2006, Desktop in 2007" approach Macmini: announced Macworld06, out soon after Powerbook: Announced WWDC06, out soon after ibook: Paris 2006, out late summer 2006 Powermac: Announced Macworld07, out soon after xserve: announced WWDC07, out soon after emac: Ships by end of summer 07 iMac: Ships by end of 2007. What do you guys think? which one is more likely? anyone have their own predictions?
