    15inch and 17 inch stock models are now 2-4 business days for shipping instead of same business. Don't know if that means anything.

    Lolzers :p R0fLmAO :p wooterz!!!!!1!1!!!one!!!

    Actually, I dont think that there will a powerbook update soon. I think that apple may just be low on stock. With the iBooks, we saw the shipping dates go up after rumors appeared on the numerous sites. I dont think it will happen but I wont complain if Im wrong.

    OMGBBQ? - Oh My God Barbecue :confused:

    I am so confused. At first I thought I had this acronym thing down but looks like I have one to lookup.

    He's suggesting that with the developing trend in laptop heat production, new PowerBooks may be hot enough to have a BBQ on! :eek: :D ;)

    Crap I just purchased my 12" last week. It hasn't even arrived yet. Maybe I'll keep it in the box untill actual evidence of an update arrives. Whats the return policy on unopened devices?

    I have theory! :D

    Powermac shipping dates have also gone up. I think that Apple may be letting loose everything they've got in PPC to hurry up and wrap it up in preparation for Intel.
    I don't exactly know how to explain it, but I'm sure yall know what I'm talking about now.

    I think it's premature to think Intel. It's probably more likely that either (a) they're low on stock right now, which they'll replenish, or (b) they're purposely letting stock run out in preparation to bring out new models. As I'm going to be buying a new PowerMac soon, I'd like to believe the latter, but I'm not holding my breath. Only time will tell...

    It is only 2-4 days on the two 1.67 models. What does that mean? I think updates wont be until late august or september right after I buy mine. :p

    Haha I just ordered my 15" 1.67 upgraded to 128MB VRAM so I'm sure the update will come :p Even if it does, if my powerbook is pixel perfect I will love it and not be too upset about the update. I knew when I bought it an update was coming soon but I'm sure it won't be very major when it does. However, for people wanting a 12" powerbook I think you should wait becuase I see them updating the graphics chipset and making ram 512MB built in. These two things would make a huge difference. However, this is just my opinion. :cool:

    Oh My God Barbecue

    Although I've always seen it as "OMGWTFBBQ"

    It's just a tongue-in-cheek knock at all the acronyms/text slang used commonly on the 'net.

    Right now, only the 15" Superdrive is bumped up to 2 - 4 days. All other powerbooks are back to same day.

    Take a guess...

    I would say that updates are right around the bend next tuesday prob not. I'd say the increased shipping time is due to the decreased production of the current moddel increased production of soon to be realeased models (soon to be released=2 weeks to 1 month) as apple attempts to increase warehouse space, and reduce surplus... It could also be due to an unexpectedly high number of pbook purchases they are running low between shipments.
