Think Secret, an unofficial Mac enthusiast site, has reported that Apple Computer Inc. plans to release an Intel-based iBook in January.

Apple is expected to launch the entry-level laptop at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, the site reported, quoting "highly reliable" sources. Little else was known about the upcoming iBook, such as price or which Intel processor would be used.

However, other Intel-based Macs could be released at the expo, but they would most likely be consumer products, and not from the high-end, professional lines, the site reported.

Think Secret is operated by Harvard student Nick Ciarelli. Apple sued the site this year after it broke stories on the Apple Mac Mini computer and some iPod models. Apple claims Think Secret obtained product information from people who violated their confidentiality agreement with Apple. The case is pending.
