hey you macfreaks (i am, too!) i've been stuck with this 7500/100 (upgraded to g3 - 350mhz). i've been drooling over tibook for some while and i'm relatively new to this forum. i cudn't seem to find a thread that would tell me about the possiblities of next speed bump for tibook before i can purchase it. i just want to ensure that my $$$ will be invested on the best tibook ever (but i really don't want to be a sucker when i buy a g4 667mhz tibook today only to see its price slashed when its new high end comes out next week!!!) your scoops wud be very appreciated!!

:cool:

they added combo dvd/CDRW at last upgrade
my guess is there will be no more until at least later in the year or early next year if there are it will be minor upgrades

I upgraded my web mac from 8100-100 to TiG4-400 which was truly shockingly cool.

The newer macs have CDRW which is a strong feature and are thicker or built differently to accomidate.

I have seen G4-400's for $1500 now so I suspect the better TiG4-667 CDRW will be available used within a couple months for about $2k.

If you can stand external CDRW the 400 is a sensational value.
