    12" PB with Superdrive and 100gb HD. It looked so beautiful, I couldn't resist, even though they'll probably update it in a couple of months. My mouth is watering at the prospect :p

    Dammit, I was getting excited when I received shipping notification for my PowerBook order.

    Then I found out that it was shipping all the way from Shanghai too, with 6-7 days estimated delivery time according to Apple. Hope it doesn't take too long to arrive; I'm going on holiday to Shanghai next week :rolleyes:

    Two 15" 1.67GHz PowerBooks, each with 128MB VRAM, 100GB hard disk.

    Oh well, I have a dual 2.7GHz PowerMac to play with in the meantime :D

    Praise the Lord!!!! It got delivered today!! 9 days later.

    It looks more beautiful than I could imagine, but its also quite weighty isn't it.

    Happy, Happy, Happy :D :D :D
