    I was about to buy a new powerbook when the macbooks were announced. Thing is I still want the powerbook. The reasons vary (2x firewires is one). Another is I want to get a pricebreak and I dont want to cope with buggy software and upgrade issues. My real POINT is this: how and where (and when) to get the best price now on a g4 15" (M9969LLA). Certainly they cant stay up at $1.9k-$2k now that the mactel books are out. Any ideas?

    You know, for the next few months, yes the PBs will stay at the same price as the MacTels.

    The best place is prob here, from some broke bloke, who simply cannot wait for the cash to get his hands on a new Macbook pro.

    Yeah, check out the marketplace. I've seen two for around $1400+shipping and one even lower!

    I have a 1 GHz G4 15" Aluminum PowerBook that I am considering selling. I used it as my primary computer for a bout a year, until I bought my iMac G5, now I rarely use the PowerBook. Interested in it?
