First, no one knows the specs. No one knows if they even exist. No one can answer you. Try squeezing some info out of Steve Jobs, because you wont get anything here...

No it's not...

Don't ask me what the differences are, but hyper threading is a different technology...

Dual core is more like 2 processors in one i believe.... (not dual processors though!)

iBooks were last updated, along with PowerBooks, in June 2004. Expect updates every 6 months (about), following Apple's update pattern. That would mean the iBooks would be updated probably around Christmas.

Following Apple's pattern, that is. So don't trust me!

Well last time the update was in november i believe so I'm guessing we'll see an update around then.

In time for christmas, but with enough time to avoid christmas delays.

Sorry if I was wrong about the hyper threading, i didn't think it was the same thing?

No it's not. A Hyperthreading CPU still only has one core, even if in Windows or Linux it's shown like a dual CPU. It kinda simulates a dual CPU, but doesn't have all the same advantages.

A dual core CPU actually has two physical CPU cores on one dye, which means it is two CPUs on one dye, except of having two seperate CPUs.
