I would like to suggest that Apple consider adding Intervideo?s Instant Play technology to the next line of PowerBooks. Instant Play lets users play DVDs and CDs without needing to boot into the operating systems, in this case Windows.

InterVideo’s innovative InstantON technology allows users to enjoy watching DVD/VCDs and listening to music without having to wait for Windows to load on their notebooks. After a quick boot-up into INSTANT PLAY, all of the consumer electronic features immediately come to life. With a click of a button, viewers can watch VCD/DVDs with superior clarity or they can listen to music with crisp clear sound… An additional feature with “INSTANT PLAY” is the ability to operate video playback and adjust music audio with a remote control.

Instant Play is available today in Sharp?s ultra-portable (2.8 pound) Actius MP30, Sharp Mebius MURAMASA PC-MP and in the HP Pavilion dv1000 Entertainment Notebooks.
