Apple is allegedly planning to launch new iBook notebooks with its Front Row media experience by this spring.
These new iBooks will feature Intel processors and 13-inch widescreen LCD displays. They will feature the Front Row software from Apple which offers a simple and powerful way to play music, photo slideshows, DVDs and more and they will also have the Apple Remote and a built-in iSight webcam.
Although processor specifications for the upcoming iBook series remain largely unconfirmed, it's only logical to assume the laptops will be powered by Intel's 1.67GHz Core Solo processor -- the only processor on the chip maker's roadmap suited for a laptop that is neither equal to, nor greater than, the Core Duo chips used in Apple's MacBook Pro laptops. As the name implies, Intel's Core Solo processors contain one processing core, compared to the Core Duo's two.
