Sun Oct 5 16:00:44 GMT 2003 New iBooks rumored
Link: https://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=212I don't know if I want to buy a new iBook quite yet - the one I use now is only a year old, but it looks like Apple plans to tempt me. The present iBook is just a tad on the weak side.. it isn't really slow, but it sure isn't snappy either. I've noted before that one thing Apple definitely needs is more RAM in their base models - and it would help if you could expand RAM beyond 640 MB too. I'm wondering how well Panther is going to run on the current iBook; poor performance there could push me to an early upgrade.
My innate dislike for spending money will push against all of that. I ran a Tandy 1200 with an add-in 386 board for more years than I should have because of that. It doesn't bother me to upgrade the Intel machines I have now, because Intel boxes are so cheap. But once I start seeing eights and nines at the beginning of the price, I have a strong urge to "make do". As an iBook will easily be double that threshold, I'll probably wait, but that doesn't mean you have to.
Got something to add? Send me email.
