    Listen to my story:
    I am finishing high school and I am going into University next year. Now, I've been waiting for the new G5 powerbooks, but I dont know when they will come. I used to have a Powerbook G4 500 but I sold it because I thought that the G5 PB would come soon.
    Now, I need to get a laptop before mid-Sept. So, should I wait for the June conference? Or should I just get one now?
    I'm so tempted with the new G4s that just came out, but I dont know. I am going to have to sell my Powermac G4 Dual 1 Ghz MDD. So how much would I get for that?
    I'm buy the 17" because I'll probably need it as my primary computer.

    If you can wait, wait for the WWDC, but don't really expect a G5 Powerbook announcement then.

    I suggest you do order so you get your machine at least a month before you need it. This way you have time to set it up. And if there is a delay in shipping for some reason, you'll still have it for classes.

    First of all you shouldn't put you trust in what MAY happen. Do you need it now? Yes, then buy one. No, you'll get a better deal later.

    And yes, it really is that easy.
