    Now that boot camp is out, would I be a fool to buy a 12" pb and not wait for the new macbook? I would love a small portable machine with the 1.67Ghz core duo. And I wouldnt mind the 1280x720 screen res.

    I would hope that the macbook comes in at a 1000/1500 price point for the solo/duo

    definitely wait. unless you have programs you need to run that aren't universal or can't be ran under Rosetta, i'd wait.
