So I'm a soon to be switcher. I've been following the whole Powerbook upgrade on Tues scenario for over 6 months. Now that it has finally happened however incremental these changes are it finally happened. I will soon be buying a 15.2" Powerbook with AppleCare with my Education Discount, as a Grad student my needs for a portable stable computer is a must. Plus my main desktop AMD 3200 with XP is being used by my other 1/2 while I have been temporarily using an IBM x21 laptop PIII500 with XP. I put the 2 in my cart last night and there was a $40US difference from what I was looking at last weekend. Upon further digging, Apple has decided to add a new P/N that has "Auto enroll" for AppleCare. AppleCare Protection Plan for PowerBook (w/or w/o Display) - Auto-enroll Part Number: S2304Z/A $279US AppleCare Protection Plan for PowerBook (w/ or w/o Display) Part Number: M8853LL/A $239US I can manually search and add the cheaper AppleCare but I think this is sneaky to the uneducated or rather the person that is unaware a change has taken place. When you add any powerbook to your cart you have 1 choice for "Auto Enroll" Upon further investigation the iBook has a similar change but has the same price.
