G5 Powerbooks in July?

According to quite a few sources, Apple will be shipping PowerBook G5s in the next 6 months. The timing sounds right. Tiger will be shipping by the Developer's conference and they need to announce something big - so G5 Laptops sounds like a logical choice. I can wait 6 months - where can I pre-order a 17"?

What do you want a 17" for? I'm probably the only one on earth that doesn't see the point in more than a 12" laptop. Isn't it about being portable?

I've had a 17" for the past year and a half and it's really not about being portable for me. I'm used to having dual 19" monitors or (nowadays) a 23" monitor. 12" is just too small - I prefer the real estate. The 17" doesn't work well on planes, but I rarely travel. And it's pretty light, so it fits fine in my backpack when I ride to work.

I'll have to go with Matt here, give me the screen real estate. The 17" is about as big as I would want. I currently have a 15", but will really be considering a 17" next.

If all the sources point back to the same sort are they really seperate sources?

I have a 12". It gives me the same sensation as reading a book. Computers are no longer complicated tools, with an wifi and laptop, they become some very cleaver and changing open book.

I also have to agree with Matt on this. At the house, my development box is a 15" IBM Thinkpad A22P which I run at 1600 X 1200. It runs both Suse 9.2 and Win 2K. It's great when you can take your development box to the client's site to show him what your working on.

I would love to have more realestate because I run dual monitors at work and have gotten where I really like it. A 17" G5 Powerbook would be great, plus you could connect it to that 30" HD Monitor(maybe:-)). Now that whould be a set up!
