AlBook, others are saying it will STAY Ti. Really only a small minority
are saying it will go G5, most acknowledge it will stay G4 till 2003.
Some are saying the holdup is to due to waiting for an across the board
update (12", 15", and 17" - if you think about it, the advantage might
be to allow 'headroom' between the 15 and the 17). They may or may not
be waiting on a new processor - either the Moto 7457, or the IBM "Gobi"
My feeling is, an update will get done before September. Off-to-school
sales are important to Apple. Although most kids buy iBooks, kids off to
design programs buy PowerBooks. The pessimists say MWSF 2004, but I
think something will happen before that.
