iBook Rev B Update What are the odds ?

 Well MacWorld Expo Japan is apon us and many folks expect the iBook to be Updated aS the ibook is due for an upgrade.

Back in Oct we came out with an article on some info on the upcoming revised iBook ( Revision B. iBook in the Works ! ) Today we are going to assign odds to what's likely to happen from that article and what we feel now as the picture as to what Apple has in mind become slightly clearer.

Back in October we said that :

"The low-end model colors would remain Blueberry and Tangerine and the Higher end unit would come in Graphite like the iMac DV Special Edition !"

We think the odds on this are 100%

We also feel that whatever the speed bump is, Apple would keep the speed Under their Powerbook lineup.

Odds 100%

Although some people feel that 3 new models of the iBook is possible , we don't think it will be more than 2.

Odds 10%

Back in Oct. we had heard that cost and sizing issues were related to getting or not seeing a slot loading CD/DVD iBook and we agree, we'll be waiting on that a bit longer.

Odds 20%

Before we also felt there was a chance of a 33mhz increase but that wouldn't be enough today.
