New Powerbook to be introduced! - 08/28/02 06:02 AM

"mosr.com" posted the rumour that Apple is going to introduce it's new Powerbook-line within 2-6 weeks. About the tech-specs they said the following:<br><br>"The time is ripe for Apple to pack more punch in the Powerbook lineup - expect processors at up to 1GHz (although 933MHz is a popular conservative projection these days), an updated display....and if Apple can manage it, the company is widely believed to want to get its hands on a suitable amount of portable DVD-RW drives it can dub its "ultraslim Superdrive". We'll be talking much more about the future of the Powerbook family later this week.<br><br>Also, there has been some speculation recently that Apple may be able to adapt the 167MHz frontside bus used in the new Dual 1.0 and 1.25GHz PowerMacs to the Powerbook. If so, it would likely be in the high-end model, and also only if the processors reach 1GHz -- 920MHz and 833MHz seem unlikely speeds under the circumstances."<br><br>Well if somebody knows more about the tech-specs or other features please mail me.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

mosr also thought the iPod was going to be the iWalk. They also said the latest round of PowerMacs would be 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 ghz... don't believe everything you read on the rumor sites. They are wrong more often than not.<br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

I agree with MacGizmo...most,if not all, rumor sites get it wrong..but more so with MOSR.<br><br>

I've got some great predictions:<br><br>the iBook and TiBook will be upgraded at some point in the future... specs aren't clear though...<br><br>MacOS X 10.2.1 will be released shortly (not real definite on the timeline, but before you know it, it'll be here).<br><br>My wife will come home tonight and ask me to cook her dinner...

Speculation comes from the latin for mirror. So yes, I think they probably do speculate, given that what they put out is such ________. You fill in the blank <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
