Nice to see Apple come through with the video upgrades

There it is.

After all the naysaying and whining about how Apple would come up short on these upgrades, they hit near the top of the predictions *and* lowered the base-model prices.

Lucky i took the day off work!

So i can experience this joy first hand!!

Just a thought...

Does anyone know who would want to buy an arm and a leg?
- 24 years old, One careful user - a few naughty abusers though.
- Clean and hard working.
- Very tolerant - puts up with stepping in s*@t, and typing on a Peecee.

Reasonable price offers considered, will deliver!:rolleyes:

Nice, and my wife is looking to buy a new laptop - I just need to convince her that the TiPB with the SuperDrive is the way to go.....that's a nice machine - I wonder how hot it will run?

Very nice indeed. Just such a shame that the entry level iBook will cost me $322 more in the UK and still no fully working Sherlock or iPhoto. :mad:

Almost makes it tempting to fly to the States to pick one up!

Well, arn, you have very good sources ;)

The better thing is that for an extra hundred, you can go from a combo drive to a superdrive!!! But what is this about apple saying they don't have the 5400 rpm 60 GB HD anymore?:confused: Too bad its still PC133 SDRAM, but hey, the price drop is awesome!!!:D And we gots the Radeon 9000!!! :D Although the rez is still 1280x854...but thats ok!!!

We gots superdrive!!!
We gots the 64 MB Radeon 9000!!!
We gots the 1 GHz computer baby!!!
We gots a good deep price cut baby!!!

Good point! Why do they have to be so much more expensive in europe?

Wow this is really fantastic. I've been thinking hard about the Panasonic T1 (from Dynamism), which still is pretty cool. However, the mid level TiBook is hard to resist. Well done Apple. Also, I think the middle iBook could be the best overall value right now, what with its bump in vram and other specs.
