iBook revision clue

Saw this posted over a SpyMac and decided to check it out for myself. It seems that the Apple Instant Loan ads are quoting "iBooks from $1199". Revision soon? Looks like it.

I doubt it. All iBook model are same day shipping.

They wouldn't introduce new models with so much stock!

I don't see iBook updates for a least another month.

That's what I was thinking...

However, the iBook is due for an update.

I can confirm it, either it's a screw up, or something's due for an update....

I just configured the lowest-end iBook and it has that graphic:

But with an announcement of something next week (ie NAB release thingy), I don't think we'll see an update before that. And it would have to be a few weeks after the NAB thing so it doesn't steel the media attention. So that say to me about a month!

perhaps it was a screwup... hopefully only in the sense that they put up that pic a bit too soon... that would mean updates soon. but surely not while they have heaps of iBooks in stock.

Actually, I think that $1,199 was the old price for the low end iBook 600Mhz before the last revision that changed the low end to 700Mhz and dropped the price to $999. I think maybe that "apple loan" graphic was just an oversight that never got updated.

I think iBook upgrade probably won't happen until later this month, at the earliest, and before end of May, at the latest.

Ah. You're right. The 600MHz CD-ROM iBook cost $1199, with the 700MHz Combo 12" going for $1499.

Guess it was just a mistake... too bad
