Good Enough, I bought a PB

I nearly bought a 12" several months ago after the last update, but decided to play it safe instead and get a Mini since this it was my first Mac. Well, obviously, I love Mac and wanted to go back and get the powerbook. I was tempted to wait for the update though, thinking it would at least be a 7448 and probably a video bump for the 12".

Well, forget it. Its not worth stressing and checking the rumor site everyday, when I can use the computer now. If its a worthwhile update, probably we won't see it until late October or November. If its not a worthwhile update then I don't care when it is. Either way, the current PB is a nice computer and I'm happy I own it.

is it good for video editiing?
I don't know, I'm sure there are good reviews of that elsewhere. I don't really even need the capabilities of the powerbook, which is part of the reason I didn't wait for the bump.

Good for you. I recently did the same thing. Now you should ask yourself whether finding out soon about a Powerbook update in the very near future will bother you much. If so, you might want to consider avoiding related websites for a while while you enjoy your new PB ;)

Hehe depends on the update!!

If it were next week, and it were a big update, I'd eat most likely eat the restock cost. After the return period though, probably I should follow your advice and stop watching the websites, and tell Apple to stop sending me product announcement emails!

I have to laugh at myself really, because I would have been perfectly happy with just an iBook. But the Powerbook is so pretty! Still, I'm concerned about having the *best* Powerbook. Stupid, stupid consumer.
