So i had finally decided to give in and purchase a 12in pbook to fulfill my dreams of mac-ownership and home recording. My instincts were saying to wait out the month until WWDC, but alas my lust for this machine overtook me. I went to the apple store with credit cards burning my pockets. I walked in and perused the store, checking out the equipment and falling in love with the little pbook. after 20mins of playing i decided to find an employee and have them take away all my problems. I launched into a diatribe about performance on the g4 867 vs the ibook 900. Questions about speeds and altivec, etc.. etc.. the apple man responded with "well it looks like you did your homework" answering none of my questions. I then began discussing the possibility of free RAM upgrades if i were to purchase the machine at that moment, to which he responded "well if you buy applecare you won't have to pay for the ram if it has any problems" which didn't answer my question and came off as very pushy to purchase applecare. I went over to the genius bar, and tried to ask them some questions, but they told me to go ask another employee. I left, with my credit card intact. I wonder if this is typical in apple stores? the good thing is i am now most likely going to wait until WWDC to purchase, as i'm hoping that the prices on the 12" will go down, or the price will stay the same but maybe the revB 12 will get the all-important l3 cache, and maybe 1ghz processor.... we shall see.
