I think if the 12" PowerBook is killed off - it'd be a crying shame
Just glad I have mine

yea same here, looks like we might be owning a dying thing
can see why they would get rid of it though as the gap between the 12"PB and iBooks get smaller with every update but it would be awesome to see the new PBs with an iSight
Apple, think different

Rumours will always be rumours but a 13" widescreen iBook *and* PowerBook would be nice :flower: Perhaps something in the old 15" 1280x864 resolution.
Rumours will be rumours though...
Either way, doesn't take away the fact I own and am using a 12" PowerBook now :flower: They are a very popular model - sold a lot of them when I worked at an AppleCentre, although much of that was to do with the fact seperating me from this thing is difficult and it always went to work with me and I wowed customers what the little silver box hooked up to a 23" Cinema display could do :flower:
And there is very much a wow factor over the PowerBook 12"...
That said, we probably sold 3 x as many iBook 12" which are phenomenally popular.

That would be horrible if they got rid of the 12 inch ones, I like them because they seem so small and portable, widescreen laptops seem to bulky, and I would rather pay for a desktop computer if it was to be that big, my metality towards laptops was they should be, more portable and smaller. The 12 inch powerbooks or iBooks were the only laptops I ever considered buying because of their size.

I say they make all the iBooks 13" widescreen, then keep the 12" PowerBook (widescreen or not) on, make it even thinner, and market it as a "portable business solution," or something like that.'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

I love macs so **** much, but i'm a hardcore gamer so i'm really stuck. I want to get the new Intel 15" PB, but what sort of graphics card will we be talking? Cause i heard you will be able to install windows on the new ones

I was reading in laptop magazine how they said the Averatec 4100 with 13.3 inch widescreen display was the best bet in their "affordable and portable" category. If I'm not mistaken isn't that who Apple has making the ibooks? And if so, does this signal towards a sooner release date for the new mactel ibooks? Juuuuuuuust wondering. Maybe I'm digging to deep into this. :miner:
