Tech Addendum

Also added to the rumor list: Think Secret now claims a minor speedbump will be added to the Powerbook line - the 12" will get boosted to 1.5 GHz, while the 15" and 17" models will go to 1.67 GHz. Other expected tweaks include Bluetooth 2.0 support (All current Macs support Bluetooth 1.1, as do pretty much all PC's that support Bluetooth at all), official support for DVD+R on the SuperDrives, and an increase in standard VRAM from 64MB to 128MB.

Though today is the first I've heard of this one, it wouldn't shock me if it came to pass - Think Secret has a pretty good track record on these kind of last-minute rumors.

With this combined with the rumors in my previous post today, and last week's announcements of faster Xserves, Xsan shipping, and the price cuts of $200 on all Apple LCD monitors, it's a good week to be a Mac fanboy.
