No way. A news leak already–a full week before MacWorld? It makes sense, though. A 17 inch screen would really make the new iMac come of age. I foresee a new form factor for the minitower “Quicksilver” Mac, myself–it’s about time. And I predict that Apple will come out with something surprising in line with its digital hub strategy–a new peripheral or enhanced iPod. Apple didn’t put handwriting recognition technology into the Jaguar OS for nothing–they have a plan.

Yep, armchair prognostication is great, isn’t it?
