Yesterday, Apple's Director of Power Mac Product Marketing, Tom Boger, cast aside that policy to say that there would be no PowerBook G5 anytime soon. Boger explained that there were engineering challenges involved in migrating the G5 architecture to both the PowerBook and the iMac. Boger's comments effectively put rumors about Apple's future in those product categories to rest -- a move analysts applaud.
I wasn't expecting a G5 PowerBook, given IBM's production issues. But no G5 iMac?!! He didn't say that, but he lumped the PowerBook and the iMac together.
