    Hello,

    Does anyone know what is the usual trend of the ibook/powerbook prices following the announcement of updates? I guess the prices of the new machines will go up but by how much?

    The current specifications of the high end ibook are enough for my needs, isn't it wiser to buy now just before the updates while the prices at their lowest? :confused:

    Prices on new models can be higher, lower, or the same as the models they just replaced. You'll just have to wait and see.

    It depends. Apple kept the prices the same for the last revision on it's notebooks. But the one before that i believe there was a 100$ price drop on all models.

    I'm kinda confused on what you're are saying. Why would you buy a iBook right before the new ones are announced. After the new models are announced, the high end iBook will probabl be going for $1,100, or something like that. I will be like $300 or $400 off. Why would you pass up those savings, and if money isn't an issue why not get a new model. :confused:

    Yes. The older Revs will go on sale in the Red Tag Sales section. That is what I did when the new PM's came out, I then got the older rev with a $500 discount & the more expensive models got an even greater discount than that.
