    I would like to see some sort of AirMac thing where you can stream high definition videos from iTunes to an Airport device attached to your TV. That, or a mac mini with Front Row and a remote.

    Yeah, I'm really hoping for a revamped mac mini, with front row, keynote, and the processor upgrades.

    I'm thinking since they released the new quad G5 there will be the intel chips in the Powerbooks and iMacs, with the mac mini and iBooks shortly following.

    Thing is they havnt dont much for the iBook lately, so I could see them adding something to that?

    i highly doubt the ibooks would get a major update before the powerbooks


    the ibooks had their major update when they switched to g4s, the last major powerbook update was when they first released the 12inch, which was 3 friggen years ago


    i neeeeeed a new powerbook

    i hope they update the minis too.

    I think it'd be BS if they made all this hype about intels and put them onto HDTVs and didnt update the computer line.

    U think thats it? WTF is iWeb, replacing safari?

    btw, the keynote is on Tuesday, January 10 from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM PST
