I am in the market for a nice new 15" PowerBook (lucky me). I was going to get one tax free at Dixons in Gatwick when I fly to Aberdeen tomorrow but I called them earlier and it didn't sound good. The only Macs they have in stock are G3 iBooks and they don't have any PowerBooks in their warehouse. I asked about paying for it and having them deliver it when they get them but the guy said they couldn't do that (but I could talk to the manager tomorrow if I wanted). So looks like my plan to save 300 is out :(

So I looked on the Apple Store and it said 2-3 weeks! Micro-Anvica have a status of pre-order. Dabs say less than <1 week for stock. Anyone know of anywhere in the UK that actually has some?

The only SuperDrive model I see available there is a refurb (yet full price!) I'll see what Dixons say tomorrow. If no go I'll order from Dabs on 12 months interest free credit (not really needed but a nice option).
