So yes. I was bored but I thought I would take a stab at it. First of all the date in which the PB comes out. My estimate 27 or 28th of September (next week). I reason this because of a few things: 1) according to the product cycle guide on macrumors, they are due just at about this exact time 2) Apple is having a small seminar in New york on Oct 1st to help people learn how to use their "new" powerbooks. although the specs listed are the same they could easily change, and why use the word "new" if the've been out since late January. Furthermore, by holding this seminar it will entice buyers to buy a powerbook after seeing all the neat things it can do with a note saying PB's were updated just this week 3) Good timing : 1) Paris expo will have ended and therefore not steal the thunder 2) Education promotion ends the weekend before 3) We see LOTS of discounts/ refurb listings everywhere showing a clear out of current inventory Things I expect but dont have reasons for except what I hope for and commom sense in accordance to the market- 1) Higher resolution screens 2) faster CPU's (even if marginally, hoping for 7448 chips) , possibly more RAM and HD space 3) upgraded GPU - perhaps the mobile ati chips now you guys can pick apart why these things wont happen!! get cracking!!!
