Why would they give up, when they could keep working hard and earn every last cent before apple "ditches" them.AP_piano295 said:Thinking mactel
We will probably never see a g5 powerbook I dont see IBM working hard to develope a product for a company that just dumped them. So every one who waited for the g5s may never see them.
IBM may not give up, but Apple probably will. Apple have to redesign their laptop to hold the G5.ITASOR said:Why would they give up, when they could keep working hard and earn every last cent before apple "ditches" them.
The 970s had all kinds of thermal/power management according to the docs on IBMs website.Sun Baked said:The next generation chip, the Power5-UL, probably would have been able to be used in a PowerBook -- the Power5 added dynamic thermal/power management to the CPU.

my guess is they have been anticipating this move for a long time and i wouldn't be surprised if apple secretly had a working model(s) in r&d of what will come out sometime next yearwdlove said:I certainly don't see a PPC G5 in the PowerBook. Apple is probably putting all its R & D into the Intel PowerBook. They just have 6 - 9 months to have a model ready for sale.
agreed!stridey said:People saying "we won't see a G5 powerbook because of the Intel switch" are probably looking at it the wrong way around, in my seeing. It's all speculation, but the way I see it, we're making the Intel switch because we'll never see a G5 powerbook, not the other way around.
