Lightbulb ThinkSecret reveals iBook, Mac mini update part numbers

ThinkSecret - New iBook, Mac mini part numbers appear

This lends credibility to the theory that the two updates will be announced on the same day - and also seems to indicate that there'll now be three preconfigured minis, but only two iBook lines (12" and 14"? Are they getting rid of the preconfigured SuperDrive for the 14" or is it going to be there by default?)

Let the speculation commence.

Somehow, I get the feeling that a superdrive option tends to be cheaper than a superdrive intergrated model.

Last night I told my friend to hold off a few weeks before ordering her 12" iBook. I'm happy the prices are staying the same, which means you'll get a tiny bit more bang for your buck I would think.

The widescreen rumour is very exciting. I wonder if they will make 512mb standard in iBooks as well? Or boost the processors a tiny bit? Hmmmm.

Also, the PowerBook line is in desperate need of a price adjustment. It's getting a little ridiculous. Ah well.

I think that's a big hint that it'll be here soon (Monday or Tuesday). I can't wait to see what they come out with, this will be my first mac.

Don't expect that. If it come out, it'll be when IBM will start shipping low-power consumption G5s and by that time we'll maybe see the first Intel on a Mac.

Ah, whatever iBook comes out in like 2 years then i'll buy it. I don't really give two shits if intel is in my mac or not, IBM seems fine to me.

They don't offer price protection on BTO's so you may be right. Plus, the higher end model usually includes some other upgrades.
