    So who do we nominate to act surprised on behalf of the Macrumors community when the Amazon-spec machines get released?

    Me too. Now that Tiger is here I'm ready to buy the next revision 12" ibook. I didn't get a sense from the rumor mill that the ibook is coming today; but it seems like May is a good bet. I hope there are some pleasant surprises for the powermac buyers today-- I dont want to read a 400 post WORST UPGRADE EVAR thread....

    The Amazon spec's didn't note the GPU, so at least you have that to look forward to (or be disapointed by). :rolleyes:

    Well hopefully there is a top-end machine, or some other surprises up their sleeves.

    Yay for errors! I wasn't able to check my Tiger ship status for the last half of yesterday, either. I took a pretty pdf pic of the store, but server be tooooo busy. Everyone is so excited, how fun.

    All of sudden, I was able to check the new powermac.
    It is exactly what was posted before.

    I did not like the prices though...2k + is way too much for me.

    Back up. Not very big changes though :( Maybe we'll see iMac and eMac updates soon?
