Probably not powermacs At the very least tomorrow's show will be suspenseful.<br><br>
If it's part of tomorrow's announcements, I'd assume some 3rd party product will be announced as well...PCI add in cards and such, with maybe a FW2 external drive or similar. Then again, could be simply a case of "it's ready - expect it in all new Macs".<br><br>BTW, I saw LOTR over the Christmas break. I enjoyed it. My wife didn't.
