After all the big, uh, news from a couple of weeks ago you could almost forget that Apple still has a lot of time to kill PowerPC-based product to sell between now and when they introduce their first computer with Intel inside, but what's still a little hazy is how much they're planning to improve their current lineup before they make the switch. We don't know for 100% for certain whether this'll be one of the last G4-based iBooks or one of the first Intel-based iBooks, but Taiwan's Economic Daily News is reporting that Asustek, which already makes both the 12-inch iBook and PowerBook, has been tapped by Apple to build a new 14-inch widescreen iBook.
