I saw this on the powerpage website- one of the websites that got into court trouble with apple reguarding the asteroid thing a few months back. If they were right about that perhaps they are about this!!! HERES HOPING!! Quote: Weekend Update: PowerBook Updates Imminent; Intel PowerBook in Late 2006 18 September 2005 04:51 EST Jason D. O'Grady From the Hardware Dept. ATHENS -- Quickee update from the Athens airport. We've received word over souvlaki that Apple is prepping an update to the PowerBook line that could arrive as soon as this week. Time and details are unconfirmed, but before you drip tzatziki sauce on your tie, the revs are nothing to send a postcard home about... looks like a typical Apple speed-bump: clock speed and a slight bump on RAM and HDDs. In other news, a voice from the top of Mount Olympus whispered that the long-awaited Intel PowerBook _won't_ be shipping in time for Macworld Expo 2006 in January, but rather will come some time in "mid-to-late 2006."
