Now that the iMac updates are out of the way, along with the iPods as well, it seems now that Apple is clearing time of the keynote for something big. The Powerbook was missing from the updates today, and sites claim they won't be updated tomorrow. This begs the question, why? If they are just going to be speed bumped G4's like the iMac, why would Apple wait until the Expo to release them? Your answer, because they WILL indeed be G5's. Remember when Apple ordered 40GB Hd's back when they released the first batch of Gen3 iPods but didn;t use them? They came out today. My theory is the same thing is going to happen with the G5 PB. Apple ordered 1.2~1.4 GHZ G5's along with the 1.6 and 1.8 back in May, where did they go, in the PBs. All signs point to it. Now more than ever. So here's my last spec prediction before the expo next week. Powerbook Specs (Final Prediction) 15.4" and 17" Screens 1.2-1.4GHZ G5 600MHZ-700MHZ FSB 512K L2 Cache 512 DDR 400 RAM Superdrive all around 64-128MB Raedon 9600 Mobility Bluetooth Airport Extreme USB 2.0 Firewire 400/800 12" Powerbook 1.0-1.25GHZ MPC 7457 (When Moto finally ships it) 512K L2 Cache 1MB L3 Cache (Maybe) 256MB DDR266 RAM Combo-Superdrive 64MB nVIDIA/ATI Raedon? AE, FW800 USB 2.0 Backlit Keyboard (Possibly) With one week to go, we all are in for a treat. A 1.2 GHZ G5 takes 19watts, the same as the 1.0GHZ 7455. Coolchips, a cooling company's stock has risen a lot in the past few months. They could possible be used to cool the chips. The 12" can't move to the G5 until the 90nm chips come out in Jan/Feb 2004.
