At first I was very wary of the possibility of a third laptop making the product lineup. The new iBook is so feature rich, it makes it hard to believe that a product could be sold between the iBook and the PowerBook. But then I took a closer look at these offerings.
Go2Mac readers know that we have been speculating that Apple is preparing to announce a new PowerBook that will fall directly between the just-announced iBook Dual USB and the professional PowerBook G4 Titanium. Never has one story elicited so many comments and reader feedback!
The new ‘Book, which we have affectionately dubbed Son of Pismo, will be just that: a Pismo logic board with Pismo features (14.1-inch TFT, G3 processor, Pismo ports, etc.) but packed into a new enclosure that is more in line with Apple’s 2001 PowerBook makeover.
