    Should I go off of your post, or the title of your thread?

    I do think powerBOOK updates are right around the corner, September at the latest.

    Powermac's on the other hand are sort of hard to gauge. I would imagine they'll be getting these new IBM dual-core processors, but information as to when that might be is hard to come by. I'm no expert, but historical averages indicate it won't be until LATE this year, or early next year. Confusing things a little is the fact that shipping times have gone up to 2-3 weeks for the high-end powermacs.

    P.S. There are MANY other threads already related to updates of both of these products.

    My suggestion whenever buying a Mac, if it is a concern whether or not it will be updated is to wait as long as you can. If you need it for a work commitment, or for school or something then wait till the middle of August, if its for pleasure or whatever what until at least the MacExpo in Paris which is in Sept.
