    If you type Power Book into the search function on apple's website the price comes up as $2199. What gives?

    I also did a search on Power Mac and it says from $1699 however the name of that file is powermac071801.gif. . . so I'm not sure that date means much . . .

    When do you think they will put DDR RAM into the laptops? Then i will seriously consider getting one.

    dual tibook? don't think i'll ever see one? i'd rather see a new line of tibook, g5 chip! but then i guess we won't be seeing it till 2004 or so tho there's a rumor about having a new line of tibook coming up in mwsf.

    could this be something like with today's powermac line-up change?? They have a promotion on the powerbooks at the moment (on educational store) and they end on the 25th of September. Does this mean that there will be a change on the 25th???

    Is this the one where you get a hunderd off the low end model, and 150 off the top end? If not, what exactly was the promotion? How do you know it ends on September 25?

    Re: Power Book price drop

    it has to be the older model(s), but powerbook is now up for the update...hopefully soon, too

    apple needs a 1 ghz laptop just for morale purposes since dell has their 1.4 ghz pentium 4 at $1299 US...that is crazy, even with a chepo-looking black plastic enclosure
