Welcome to 970 country?

With the newest - and most reliable - Powermac specs reporting in at 1.6, 1.8, and Dual 2 GHz 970s (see "Breaking News!!!", "Specs!", "Specs!", and "Specs!", below), a new question is just starting to surface.

Previous reports of 970 production had IBM churning out 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, and possibly a lower power 1.2 GHz processors (the 2 GHz barrier was to be broken later in the year). So, where are the 1.2 (if they exist) and 1.4 GHz processors going? Currently, IBM isn't selling servers equipped with any 970s, so the only company that could use these processors would be the big ol' Apple.

If Apple isn't putting the 1.2 (not confirmed) and 1.4 GHz processors into Powermacs, where else could they go but Powerbooks? Considering these leaked Powermac specs, I'd consider 970 Powerbooks more likely now than ever before.

More later today (contrary to popular belief, I do sleep).
