no way. unless they have G5 powerbooks, they wont have G5 mac minis. look at hte emacs, they are in desperate need of updating and they are more than capable of handling a G5, but apple doesnt want to add one in. Their high end desktop should be the fastest thing since sliced bread, their midrange desktop should be gimmicky and equal to the speed of their high-end notebook. their low end desktops should be relatively fast but not have some of the unique features of the midrange desktops. their lowened notebooks should be just a notch slower than their lowened desktops and have a worse form factor than their high end counterparts.
its the way apple has been for years, and they areng going to change now. if they have a G5 mac mini then the emac will be out of the picture completly. also, it would make their notebook design look really bad. PC lappys have had 64bit CPU's for well over a year. updating the mini and not the pbook will make apples inability to make a 64bit notebook stick out like a sore thumb.
