PowerBook G5 - 'Going to be a while'
In a wide-ranging interview with ComputerWorld, David Russell director of product marketing for portables and wireless at Apple made some comments about the feasibility of a PowerBook G5.
- "We certainly want to do that. But it's going to be a while. We think the G4 has a very long life in the PowerBook", according to Russell
This echoes similar statements made by Steve Jobs indicating that they would like to produce a G5 PowerBook by the end of 2004.
Cooling issues continue to be cited as the reason for the difficulty in implementing a G5 PowerBook. One subsequent rumor hinted that Apple was testing liquid cooling to overcome these obstacles.
