I don't buy it... They may not have the 17" inch on the slate yet, but I am sure it will come. I have a 17" G4 PB and I really want the new MacPro. I will just have to wait. Where are you getting this info from?

Well this is what I was told by a friend / client who is in the know. He just said they where planning both but have now dropped the 17. However it remains to be seen if its true.

A new 6gb red and black nano is on the way also

Well, it makes sense to me. A 17" notebook is only 1.6" larger than the 15.4" MacBook they have now. I dont think that warrants making a whole new model. I think they tried to take what was most popular with the PowerBooks, which is the 15", and release something akin to that for MacBook. The 17" is the least popular when you look at sales, for its quite a bit more.

I was really hoping for a 13.3" widescreen version of the MacBook Pro. I wonder what they would call it, the MacBook Mini? lol

Probably just the MacBook, wich will replace the iBook.
In my opinion, there will be following line-up of portables:

MacBook 13.3" Core Solo
MacBook 15.4" Core Solo
MacBook Pro 12" Core Duo
MacBook Pro 15.4" Core Duo
MacBook Pro 17" Core Duo

MacBooks will not be widescreens, I reckon, only the Pros.

I think the iBook line could still exist in the future.

I really wish they would just reconsider the MacBook naming scheme. My guess, though, is this:

Consumer core solo books:

12.1", 14.1"

Pro books:

13.3", 15.4", 17".

This keeps them clearly divided. Consumer has single core, pro has dual. Pro has widescreen, consumer does not. Simple as that.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

agreed, i like how that would go..
I would also want a 13.3 inch wide screen macbook.. something small..
as long as it has all the features of the 15 and 17, it annoys me that the 12 inch powerbook does not have everything that the 15 and 17 inc powerbook have, I have the 15 inch powerbook.. but i would like a 12 inch for just like aim and stuff on the road.. better battery power and such.

I also believe that the 17" is too big and bulky. I think that two notebooks in each line would be enough.

Agreed. I know that there's the external monitor and whatnot, but had I gone for the 17", there'd be little for me to ***** about.

As for the 12" lacking features, I agree that they really should've had a little more, but a 12" body is kind of hard to fit it all into. I saw the guys at the Apple store pry open my book and it was like "Whoa, they fit all that in there?"

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.
