Biggest questions are the feature set on the new PB15:
Assumed:
Aluminum enclosure, Bluetooth, AirPort Extreme with antennas in the LCD bezel and FireWire 800.
Questions:
15.4-inch display? (likely), video card? (TBD), Ambient lighting? (not likely), Faster than 1GHz? (not unless they bump the PB17 too – unlikely), PPC970? (not a prayer).
