PowerBook Updates Imminent?

O'Grady's PowerPage claims that Apple is prepping an update for the PowerBook line "that could arrive as soon as this week."

The update is expected to be a minor speed bump but few details are available.

Also reported is that Intel PowerBooks are not expected until mid-to-late 2006.

The imminent prediction of PowerBooks is contrary to recent predictions by ThinkSecret that PowerBooks would not see updates for some time... possibly as late as early 2006. Traditionally, ThinkSecret has been far more accurate than PowerPage with product release predictions.

Of note, readers are reminded that Apple Expo Paris kicks off this week on September 20th. While Steve Jobs was originally expected to provide a keynote speech, that speech was canceled in early September.
