Couple of thread over as macrumors.com have been churning over this, consensus there is that this is a fakie... If this does come true and they fix all the typos and such, there will be many a happy people out there next week..

Wow! I didn't know that Apple was so terrible at spelling . At least if I was going to pull something like this, I would use a spell checker and make sure that English was my first language .

Oh well, good try

Well hopefully something good gets released for this WWDC. Hey if they are (which they're probably not) be Powerbook G5's, by gosh it'll be the death of my wantings.

I think they may introduce a new iBook G4 series, but I have no idea. The WWDC will just be a mystery

I think they have established this as a fake at MacRumors, not professional enough to be Apple...

Are you people actually questioning whether or not this is a fake? Of course it is!

I'd think that a 12" 1440x900 screen would be a big tip-off.
