Etc.

Was there any word on confirmed Powerbook upgrades? I checked the webstore but the processor speeds still remain the same.

That's such a big disappointment. I was planning on ordering a 12" Powerbook this week, but if it's still the same as it was 9 months ago there is no way i'm paying that much for something that old.

For you guys who cant get the webcast to work, keep trying, its well worth your trouble(i just finished watching it). I'm going to get iWork for sure and maybe iLife '05, Pages looks amazing.

I was also disappointed that there weren't any news on powerbook updates. I found this article on ThinkSecret though.

I might wait for buying a new powerbook then. (Maybe when Tiger releases) :unsure:

can mac mini run tiger smoothly? :whistle:

585276322[/snapback]

It's not exactly known, although you would think that it would run it fine because, why release something if its not gonna work with something that'll come out in the very near future.

We do know that Core Video will not be implemented into the Mac Mini unfortunately due to its Graphics Card limitations or something like that.

Or maybe not lol.

We'll have to find out soon enough. I'm thinking Tiger will be announced sometime around WWDC 2005...although that may be a little late.

sure it will, I have tried Tiger on a iMac G4 that was 800Mhz and had a GeForce2 MX and it run just fine, keep in mind the GFX card and processor in the Mac mini are much more powerfull.

Why does Mac Mini only have 32MB RAM? Isn't that consider slow?

Thats Video RAM. The amount of RAM is less important than the graphics processor; a 64 meg integrated solution would be worse than the 32 meg Radeon 9200 in this, as there is no dedicated GPU in the first case.

Agreed.  I think they should release a 17" display running at 1280x1024, that would be cool :)

I doubt it, remember that Apple has been focusing in widescreen ;)

A very reliable source just told me Apple will update the GFX processors of most of its line just before or during the Tiger release, that way all the new revs will run it smoothly. :happy: :ninja: :whistle:

/me waits for the Mac Mini rev1??:p:p
