Single core yonah won't be out until about June, I'm not sure if Apple will be eager to use Dothan. My money is on powerbook at macworld, ibook and mac mini at wwdc.

due to the time (http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/) between releases of powerbook model's I believe that it is in fact the other way round, with ibooks/macminis getting the update before powerbooks...

what your not seeing is that ibooks would be faster than the powrbooks and it would kill pbook sales completely

In their current state, I don't think that's a big loss... the current PowerBooks are sorely in need of an update. And with a 13" iBook, it's only going to hurt the 12" PowerBook - which has already missed out on an update. From the latest rumors, I expect a consumer iBook, and a more professional iBook/PowerBook to be introduced. The two product lines can cross over.

Don't buy a Rev A Intel Mac, that is the only advice I will give!!!
