    the yonahs wont be out till 1st quarter of 2006. But, remember that news that apple was asking for chips early?

    I doubt they got them. Plus, they would have to be ready to deploy os x86 to consumers, and i think we would have heard of something.
     
  10. If you need a computer, buy one. Don't rely on something that doesn't exist.

    Let's hope. Current 12" screen blows compared to the competition.

    as far as pros and cons the 12" ibook is almost near as good as the 12" pb. i can't justify $600 more for a faster buspeed, and more vram.

    How is it? Did you have to have certain video hardware or anything?

    If there were Intel powerbooks with big fat drives, I would triple-boot WinXP/2003 Server, OS X, and Fedora Core. That would be GREAT for me. I would buy that powerbook. That being said... I am not really waiting. Cause a new powerbook doesn't even interest me unless I can run windows.

    not point in WAITING....software wont be ready until like 2007 :/ the software that runs on the rosetta core is going to be emulated...which means at like 1/3 the speed...even adobe said it'll take a while

    dont wait

    I didn't pay for it. I've got a contracting gig with the government and needed a computer for my office. The iMac fits my needs perfectly and then some.

    Paid for by your tax dollars... Once I remember to do my expense report :o
