I've been keeping track of 15" PowerBook ship times, and this is the first time in the last couple months that the it has gone up to 7-10 days (for the 1GHz model). Of course, I only check about once a week or so.

However, the 867MHz model still ships the same day.

Questions for those who have done this longer: Is this out of the ordinary for the 15" PowerBook? Also, historically, how accurately have ship times predicted new product announcements?

Thanks

very interesting. longer ship times quite often predict new products, but not every single time.

Still ships same day in Japan.

I think it is more telling when they throw a rebate on a product or we hear it is eol'd from a dealer.

Apple did lower the prices of the 12" and 15" PowerBook in the US apple store a few weeks ago.

The 12" Combo Powerbook also now has a ship date of 1 - 2 days (down from same day a week ago).

The 12" SuperDrive, however, is still shipping same day.

We'll have to watch these wait times closely! :)

I concur. ;) Its an estimated 1-2 days shipping in Canada.
