At a special media event to be held on its campus next week, Apple Computer will unveil a new line of low-cost Intel-based Mac mini desktop computers but will not debut its next-generation iBook consumer notebooks, AppleInsider has learned.
Based on this information, it would appear that there will be at least some availability of the systems immediately following their announcement next Tuesday.
One the other hand, Apple\'s Intel-based iBooks are not expected to make an appearance at the event — they remain on target for an introduction at a later date this Spring.
The Feb. 28th Apple event is also expected to deliver some \"fun products,\" the company teased in an invitation sent to analyst and members of the media last week.
One such product is believed to be the iPod Boombox, a radical new approach to traditional Boombox systems that will reportedly retail in excess of $300.
