So ok, here goes. First, no new hardware. Apple's been trying to break the cycle of twice yearly expectations, and it ain't gonna be different this time. Second, Steve will crow about the wonders of X. Third, there'll be announcement of upgrades for iSync, which will no longet be beta, and iCal, which will be more tighly connected to iSync. Fourth, Steve will tell us that several new companies have agreed to think about making their peripherals compatible with Rendevous. Fifth, will introduce what's his name, Quark's CEO, who will put a date on when the X version will come out.<br><br>Did I leave anything out? Don't think so.<br><br>Happy now, MachOne?

I feel safe in saying that I can almost guarantee that is about as exciting as it could possibly get! Until Apple gets out from under Motorola, there just wont be ANY hardware announcements worth getting worked up about (unless you consider 100 mhz speed bumps exciting.)<br><br>

I couldn't care less about the processor. I know there won't be any big changes in that. But 8X AGP has been available to PC users for a while, along with the Radeon 9700 and now the new Nvidia FX. The Superdrives are old and relatively slow, and firewire 2 has to be just around the corner. I think those would be minor but significant upgrades and they don't require Motorola.<br><br>
