    u wish!

    I think the 17" powerbook is just plain false advertising! It should be in the next IBM commercial along with the pixy dust and genie bottle. There is no 17" powerbook.

    i doubt this explanation though. unless apple has the worst design dept of all time! this is an obvious thing...

    "let's see if it is usable before we anounce it..."

    This sounds like somthing that would be of concern to the designers in the first place.

    Being as that WOULD be the main concern of increasing the size of the screen. And the designers would have it thought through before it ever was announced. Worst thing that can happen is that 1/2 of your screens break at macworld. Nobody would buy the machine.

    Most likely somebody just thought this up, and thought it might be a reason, I wouldnt give it any credability at all.

    I was in the Apple Store in Indianapolis on Sunday. The guys there were pretty confident they would see the 17" Powerbooks by the end of the month, but also admitted Apple doesn't tell them anything either! It was amazing to just stand there and listen. About every other person walking through the door asked about the 17" PB's!
