With all this info leaking out about the 970, the motherboard, new cinema displays, etc. it seems logical to assume that our dreams will be answered and newer, faster powermacs are coming our way. The question is: when? Realistically. This summer would be great, but is that honestly reasonable to expect? I would think that Apple would like to have a major new product like this out by Chirstmas - and by that I mean ACTUALLY AVAILABLE at Christmas. A summer introduction followed by a two or three month "waiting period" would just frustrate potential switchers and kill us. Also, does Apple hold the line on costs, or will we see a (significant) price jump. I don't think the average user wants to pay much more than $3000 for a system that doesn't include a display. Lastly, can we expect the first wave to be plagued with bugs? I wasn't around for the roll-out of the G4. Was it smooth? Were the prices out of the park initially?
