Just completed a routine snoop of the major Mac retailers in the metro Kansas City area:

1) MicroCenter actually had a few 2.0 DP G5 CPU's on the floor, and a minimal display of both iBooks and PowerBooks.

2) Both CompUSA stores had virtually NONE of: PowerMac G5, iMac G5, PowerBooks, iBooks. There were a few eMacs which had been rerouted from a store in Texas. The shelves were otherwise flat out EMPTY at both stores.


Is the scarcity of Macs on retail shelves signs of upcoming upgrades ?

Both the eMac and PowerBook lines are close to the magical number of 180 days since the last update. ;)
