    i'm really interested to purchase an portable apple machine in the next month or two, so i checked out some prices at amazon.com

    why does their site report that (from what i can see) all but one ibook model is 'This item is not stocked or has been discontinued'.

    does this mean that updated models are on the way or are amazon.com genuinely 'out-of-stock'.

    what's up with amazon

    Club Mac currently reports 1275 700 Mhz ibooks in stock.

    I hate the way amazon works with anything but books.

    It's because laptops are becoming in short supply period. It has nothing to do with Amazon besides they or whoever they get them from probably doesn't stock many.

    The short supply of laptops is usually a precursor to an upgrade and many people are taking it as a sign of that.

    I had ordered 8 CDs from Amazon.com (7 used, 1 new) from Amazon.com, and I got the used ones in under a week. The new one was only 25 cents, and took longer to be delivered.

    The only things I found to be a bytch with on the site were specific rules on how to use my gift certificate, and the S&H charges for each CD.

    Usually, the MacMall, MacZone, MacConnection and MacWarehouse prices stay relatively the same, for whatever reason. Most other places will probably have something cheaper.

    They don't suck if you stick to what they were originally for: BOOKS.

    I order books, music used and new, software, and telescope parts from them and I have never had a problem. They have always been very cheap and prompt.
