Just thought I would post this separatly so everyone can see it. I have been looking around and it looks like new powerbooks will be comming out very soon. See the thread below. http://forums.applenova.com/showthread.php?t=3036 It is a rather long thread, but towards the end people are saying that most places are sold out of powerbooks. Most apple stores have significant waiting times for BTO powerbooks. People have been calling around and a lot of the customer sevice people they have talked to say that they are out of powerbooks, and when they go to check when they will be back in stock, bring up no info. This would lead me as well as many other to believe that apple will be releasing new powerbooks most likely within the next week (I'm putting my money on next Tuesday). It seems like every time apple is about to release new powerbooks, all the stores are out and don't know when they will be back in, all the apple websites start to delay shipping times, etc. Anyway, just thought I would throw this out there for those of you that are on the verge of purchasing. Just wait a few more days.
