Wonder why it was sparsely attended. Wouldn't a lot of people attend simply because there was the chance of a new product announcement?

Or did the attendees know something we didn't?

The truth is out there. So is an 867mHz 12" PowerBook that is rapidly looking like my next computer.

dang... is apple really not going to update the 15?? are they going to wait until 12/17 are due for an update and do them all at once? (which can be argued to be now...) worse yet, are they going to wait until g5 is ready to be put into a laptop? (that could be a while...)

that's a real shame... i imagine a lot of people would like an Al 15...

OR

it must be one heck of a catastrophy that's preventing the 15 pbook from being produced/introduced/etc.

i dont know when the next chance of a pbook update is...but im not leaning towards buying an older powerbook. I need a 15" notebook before college starts but im not about to buy something thats obviously outdated. And I cant get one in September...Looks like dell is gonna see my money ;[

i really wanted to switch too...

well unless Steve-o pulls a 15" Albook out of nowhere on a random summer tuesday and makes it available before school start then it looks like i will have to go w. my dad's idea. Get a 17" PB and take it to school until the 15" shows its face then buy one and give the 17" to my dad since there is nooooo way this Dell POS is coming with me. oh well:(

yuck yuck yuck

That was lame...

I guess the need to sell more computers is not very high for Apple right now. I guess the idea of new product before school starts (especially notebooks for college kids) is not important to Apple right now.

I guess the $3k on my credit card is still safe...

I was really looking forward to an announcement of Powerbook updates. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it's going to happen this week. Looks like Apple just lost a new customer.

I think a lot of people are in the same boat as me. I don't want a year-old laptop computer, so I'll be buying something other than an Apple.

I guess my question for everyone who is dissapointed here is...

Why do they have to announce new products at one of the expos? Who says that can't and won't announce new PBs as SpeedRacr26 said, 'on some random summer Tuesday'?

They still have time to beat the 'school start' deadline for the educational market. They'll bring these things to market when they are ready and when it will be a worthy upgrade :cool:
