Well the PowerBooks should get an update in mid-late fall, so perhaps the iBook will receive an update around the same time or before Christmas. If the PowerBooks hit 1GHz, then the iBooks should hit 800-867MHz (depending on if the bus stays at 100MHz).

months before Christmas I'd say...and if they ever do another completely new redesign, it'll be at a MW...but it's not late enough to do that..so by the end of the year is close enough..

i can see the ibook going to 700 low end, 800 high end right before christmas, but something faster would really be sexy

like i said before and i now believe, ibook won't see g4 until next year most likely

one thing which would be neat would be three ibooks; 12 inch screen, 14 inch screen, and 15 inch screen but i know that will never happen...pcs do this all the time on their models

i would also like to see a 16 inch tibook screen in the future sometime but i also doubt this as an option

I'd love to see a 16 too! Though I wouldn't want it to be 8+ pounds like the Sony...C'est la vie

Probably October. If they don't update them at that time, then Jan 2003.

No update on Ibook this year.
and I hope that if they update it will be increased busspeed.

and I like to comment on Jefhatfields' signature:

The Macintosh Plus: January 1986 to October 1990
Price:$2600.00
Code Name: Mr. T
On the market for: 4 years, 10 months.
Processor and speed: 68000 at 8 MHz.
Memory: 1MB, expandable to 4MB.
Equipment: Built-in, black-and-white, 9" screen; no slots; no FPU.
Requires System 3.2 to 7.5.5

I plugged it in last year, and electricity fell out.
I guess the electricity net forgot how to power such an old device.
:D

I'm gonna clean this one up and try to put it back in service.

i was kidding with the pentium 75 thing, but i do have a pentium 150 with nt server that is not used, and a quadra 840av with os 7.x that has a dead battery

i will likely never use those machines for anything since i have an aging '99 ibook and '99 presario laptop and in this techie's world, those are darn right ancient

i am looking to buy in late '02 or early '03 sometime and i have barely enough time to use ONE computer so i may actually ditch pcs altogether even though i am a pc tech/network dude like that guy on the commercial...fixing pcs in the day does not make me want to boot up to windows at night:p
