    Alright, I am pretty set on getting a new 12" iBook here in the next few days (already have a PC2700 1GB RAM stick for it, which will work in current powerbooks too). This will just be a stepping stone to a 15" Powerbook Rev C. I will use the iBook until the new revision of powerbooks comes out, and then purchase a Rev C Powerbook for cheaper than it is now (hopefully)..

    My question to you: Will it be difficult to find a new/like new Rev C 1.33GHz 15" powerbook with a backlit keyboard, or will I need to get a 1.5 GHz? After these new powerbooks come out, any speculation on the price of a 15" 1.33GHz/1.5GHz? Perhaps a refurb situation?

    Sorry for the random scenario :cool:

    Doubt you will find a 1.33 with the backlit keyboard, seeing as BTO computers are either impossible to close to it to return. A 1.5 would be what you might find... but check the Apple Hot Deals website constantly. You never know.
