Apple seeds Tiger 8A351

PowerBook G4

Sources suggest that Apple will release another PowerBook G4 round in the next two weeks. The notebooks will only up the tech specs to 1.67 GHz max and will incorporate the just announced ATi Mobility Radeon X700. Bigger harddrives are also mentioned. We'll probably see the 12" model at 1.5 GHz, the 15" at 1.5 and 1.67 and the 17" at 1.67 GHz until the PowerBook G5 takes over in Summer (or "late Summer").

Update on Mac mini: AppleWorks

The Mac mini does indeed come with office software: AppleWorks 6.x is included. I guess they want users to buy iWork. And I also guess people will. :)
