    Hello, I was just wondering if there was some kind of pattern to how Apple updates their products. Like how the powerbooks were just updated, do all the other products usually get an update before the powerbook gets another one? Thanks for any help.

    9 months just like a baby, so it takes 9 months for apple to spit out the next baby. hows that.

    The best place to look for any patterns would be the MacRumors' Buyer's Guide. How's that for a simpe solution to your question?

    Though keep in mind that Apple has been known for updates in the 180 date range in the past, but seems to be going for around 140 days now.

    Thanks Chip, I should I have posted the question differently. The reason I was asking is because from looking at the buyers guide it looks like Apple is changing their update schedules and they are becoming less frequent and more erratic

    Only Apple knows what changes they're making to their release schedules.

    Some products have had major variances lately and some haven't. It's all guesswork.
