    I believe this exact thing is the reason why the 17" was not updated today. More features being finished. Hopefully. :]

    I remember Apple released the PowerBook line with 12-inch and 17-inch models in 2003 and left the 15-inch TiBook unchange for 10 months. The table turned this time.

    Cool! So what happened to the 3.06GHz CPU? The updates they made to 17" were very minor.

    oh i know! I'll start it...

    3.06GHz
    8GB Ram
    18" Screen
    Matte/Gloss (after apple hears everyone cry about only gloss)
    firewire 400 and 800
    3 usb's
    and all the goodies that come with the 15"


    What else?

    Since when has a 3.06 ghz CPU been guaranteed for the 17"? You have to remember that this site is called Mac Rumors so this rumor (which I don't remember hearing) doesn't have to be true, and everything here should be taken with a grain of salt.

    The X9000 requires too much power; it wouldn't be viable for good battery life.
