Now that the Powermac line has finally been updated here's how the rest of the hardware sits in terms of the product cycle(excluding ipod): The Powerbook is 4 months old without an update. I am not sure if I believe Apple will wait until next year (4 additional months) before an update if they can do one- even a speed bump - 933 mhz/800mhz would be nice start The 15" imac as the oldest model in Apple's lineup - besides the price increase and decrease not much has happened to this model in 8 months. They added the 17"- which is a great value but with the emac so close in features it could use a little more powerful processor. I'm not sure if I can see ibook getting another update before the imac. Apple seems to have this need to keep the ibook in check with the rest of the speeds of its lineup. I the G4 actually scaled and shipped in large quanties we might see a 1GHZ ibook! Not sure if the would do a Bus increase, but perhaps a 100-200mhz increase would be nice. Realistically, when does everyone think the next hardware update will be- and what line?
