Yes this is an old topic. Yet, it is so important, and I am so bored, that I have decided to reincarnate it. As a year approaches with the iMac's switch to a G4, many are wondering if the iBook will get a G4 as well. While I have, in the past, said no, I am beginningto think that this is possible. If my memory serves me correctly, there was a statement that the G3 was still a viable processor, but it was not made clear what machine it would be used in. Now that we have the eMac as a rather popular model, even with slightly older technology (CRT, slower processors, etc.) it has been shoun that those wo are looking for a computer aren't looking for a super special in all cases. In this idea, i brin back the eBokk comcept. This could be the use for the G3, and priced well at between $799-1099. It could have the 12.1" screen of the current iBook as the only screen size, have few options. It would be a shiny white. It would look a lot like the current iBook, but maybe with slight differences, yet major emough to call it an all new machine. Im I right in thining this, or am I just being stupid and wasteful in posting this idea at all?
