New iBooks and PowerBooks

| 1 Comment

ibookI am thinking about getting a new Mac. Not any good reason for it though. I'll try to wait it out for one of the new iBooks rumored for next spring. No new PowerBook next month if new models come out. No. I said no! Stop thinking about it. Don't do it. I said don't do it. No. No, it's a really bad idea. Don't. Geez. Stop it! No, not even if it has an even cooler monitor. Or a superdrive. What would you use it for anyway?

The iBook will maybe get a 933MHz -> 1GHz processor and the grapevine is talking about a widescreen monitor for the top model and a 13" for the small one (instead of 12.1").

Actually, I really want the iBook, not a TiBook. The small size is very appealing. I just want it to be a bit faster so it'll feel like a real upgrade from my 500MHz Pismo (it's working really well after adding 1GB memory).

Update: Now the rumors say that there'll be no new hardware in the near future. Suck!

Sure you want a TiBook next time you go for new hardware. Just have to wait for a dual-G4/5-model to come out. Upgradring from a Pismo 400/500 to some iBook 900-blah simply ain't enough fun.
