All widescreen 'book lineup in 2005?

Several bits of information - among those the always-good-for-some-notebook-info, then some Asustek info as well as another independent Asian contact - lead us to believe that Apple plans on going "all widescreen" (or at least 'more widescreen' with the PowerBook and iBook models this calendar year. The PowerBook 12" is believed to be replaced by a more comfortable 12" or 13" widescreen model, and the iBooks, sadly for some, will probably lose the small form factor of the 12" model altogether, by becoming a 14" widescreen model. There's still the chance that the current 12" model will keep its form factor as the last 4:3 model as an entrypoint.
Either way: For the professional line it would make definite sense to move to widescreen.
