I don't even want to think how long of a wait a PowerBook G5 will have.emw said:MacMall still says January 22nd, but perhaps they pre-ordered a stash of them or something.
As for Apple delays, they probably could have announced G5 PowerBooks, since by the time people would have expected them to actually have a supply, they could design and build them.
You need to place your order during the keynote... just keep refreshing Apple.com until the new G5 PowerBooks appear.maya said:I don't even want to think how long of a wait a PowerBook G5 will have.
When it is announced either grab the floor model or place an order no less than 1 second after the Keynote ends.
Yes you will be able to use it with the Mini, although you may need a USB hub, if you don't already have one as the Mini only has two USB posts.Scarpad said:I also have a 300GB External Drive i built for my Lappy, can I use that with the Mac as well? It's USB 2.0
I cancelled my mac mini preorder and picked up an iBook instead. I'm glad I'm not the only consumer zombie out there.rhpenguin said:Waits for Apple prouducts are even worse if your not in the USA. Like for example, when the 3G iPod was released there was atleast a 6 week wait just so my local reseller could get them into Canada. So i bought my iBook instead. Now this... Guess ill end up getting a new iBook or iMac for instant gratifcation... Maybe thats Apples angle on this one. Upsell us by not having an available product.
What amazes me is that so many don't seem to realize just how hard it is to project demand. Add to that the Mac mini is not easily user upgradeable from some of the reports we are hearing.jsw said:You can't blame Apple - how were they supposed to know that there would be demand for this? I'm sure it's all the fault of 3rd party manufacturing partners, since, you know, there's so much new tech involved.
