New iPods and Pro Machines?

Appleinsider claims that Apple will be introducing new iPods and Pro Macs in October.

The 5th generation iPods will revise the hard drive based iPods and are rumored to provide improvements in size/form factor. The new iPods are believed to utilize a higher density 1.8" Hard Drive from Toshiba which are available in 40 and 80GB sizes.

Dual-core PowerMac updates have been rumored since the announcement of Dual Core PowerPC chips from IBM.
