    I just bought a new PB.
    Should I have waited?
    I guess its too late now, but for an average computer user, how will this new technology affect me?

    No one knows when the switch will occur. You buy 'em when you need 'em. That's what I say.

    IMO, I'd rather have a Rev. E Powerbook than a Rev. A Intel Powerbook since Rev. A's may have some bugs in them that will probably be ironed out in the Rev. B.

    If it were me I would get a Rev. E Powerbook, then by the time the Rev. B/C Intels are out, it may time for another upgrade.

    But that's just me....

    Average computer user? No big deal.

    The new laptops should have significantly better performance, but not mind-blowing. Battery life will also be better, but almost everything else will be similar. It is worth waiting a year? Not for the average user.
