    Since they just came out with the new G4 lineup, they'll probably do the usual, new iMac lineup, cube tweaks, and shifting over from Powerbooks to Titanium powerbooks. The old Powerbook series will probably be gone by the end of '01. I don't have too much more foresight, other then you might want to go check out the exTreme Mac 1.2 GHz. If you haven't heard of it already, it's basically a G4 that is cooled below zero then overclocked bigtime. Don't have their URL at the moment (it's a third party manufacturer) but I think it's gonna be a bad sham, they try to rip people off by selling jumper kits for $50. A few months ago I would have said Apple was booming but now they're prospects look rather average, not too much growth in my opinion and lineup will probably stay the same for a while with all the new products.

    All Apple needs is to up their processor manufacturing speeds.
