    Hey all-

    I actually have an iBook on order right now (14.1" 1.2 ghz). It listed for $1499, and was supposed to have shipped last Tuesday. Now, it has been delayed until "on or after 10/21".

    What happens if Apple does rev the product line tomorrow, and offers a superior product for $1499? Obviously, I want the better product. They partial shipped me the iBook APP kit, so I can't just cancel the order.

    Will Apple automatically do the right thing, or do I need to take some action?

    Thanks for any advice. :)

    I'm betting they will upgrade you to the new one but if they don't just return it right away and re-order it.

    they do upgrade it. i ordered a rev. A pb a week before the rev. B was released. as soon as the new model was released i got an email saying that it had been upgraded. i wouldnt worry.

    If updates are today (19th), it seems funny that yours has been bumped to the 21st. Still, you will get the closest of the new products to your order (in most cases the bumped version of your model). If there is a price drop, you'll be pleased to hear that you'll be charged the new lower price or given a rebate if already charged.

    They will stop your order, take your money and will forget about you, no iBook... :p J/K

    They upgrade your order as well... don't worry! if not, return it an order a new one, you have 10 days.
