Apple is planning to release its first entry-level iBook laptops with Intel processors next January at Macworld Expo in San Francisco, highly reliable sources have confirmed to Think Secret.

It is not known exactly what processors or price points the new models will debut at, but it is thought Apple will expand the iBook line with one additional model and will lower prices—in some cases possibly $200 or more—to entice current Windows users and prove to the market it will be more competitive with the likes of Dell, Gateway, HP and Sony.
While it won't be in time for the Christmas season, it looks like Apple is going to be quick to the market with Intel's new processor. I'm curious to see what the performance will be like, and if you could dual boot to windows (x86 developer Macs could do just this). If the lower price point is also true, the iBook's might sell pretty well.
