Where are they getting that info? I just went to the Apple Store and it still says "Same Day Shipping."

Selon une source bien informée en Europe, les stocks de Powerbook 15" Ti sont pratiquement épuisés. Il ne reste que quelques modèles Superdrive.
La date de réapprovisionnement de ces machines est fixée au 13 Juin, alors que tout le reste de la gamme est au 28 mai.

Now, do you think they will not update it @ the WWCD, as from the 13 june to the 20 th, it seems quiet improbable? huh?

My take is that we might see a dual G4 PowerBook. But I think Steve is going to introduce a new 970 desktop, not a new PowerBook. (that is going to happen SFMW 2004)
Has he ever introduced both a new Desktop and PowerBook and the same time?

Well, actually, the G3 was introduced in the PowerBook about one week before the Power Mac. So, anything is possible.
I do hope that this is true. I'm holding my breath trying to squeak by on this old PB3400 until the 15" is updated....
So, please don't let me hear anyone complain about how slow a 667 G4 PB is.

I had completely forgotten that June 13 is the date of Jobs' WWDC keynote, which coincides with the restock date indicated by MacBidouille. Of course this coincidence can be either planned by Apple, or planned by the person who planted a false rumor. IMO, it's the former, since MacBidouille quotes a "well-informed source."
HP has launched a 'ground-breaking' graphics and multimedia-oriented 15.4in widescreen notebook, the Compaq Presario X1000.
The X1000 is based on Intel's Centrino platform, offering a Pentium M CPU at 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6GHz, plus Intel's Pro Wireless 2100 802.11b card. HP is offering an integrated Bluetooth module as an option.
The 15.4in display operates at 1920x1200, 1680x1050 and 1280x800 widescreen resolutions. It's apparently "20 per cent brighter, features 33 per cent wider viewing angles and includes an improved contrast ratio compared to traditional notebook displays". It is driven by a choice of ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 with 64MB or 32MB of DDR SDRAM, or the Mobility Radeon 7500 with 32MB of DDR.
Buyers can select a 40, 60 or 80GB 5400rpm hard drive, and a 24x CD-ROM, 8x DVD, 24x CD-RW/DVD combo, or DVD+RW optical drive. They can add up to 2GB of 266MHz DDR SDRAM.
Whatever options buyers choose, they'll get three USB 2.0 ports, one 1394 port and an S-Video output. The X1000 sports integrated 10/100Mbps Ethernet, a built-in 56Kbps modem and an SD/MMC card slot.
The notebook is 3.25cm (1.3in) thick and only weighs 2.95kg (6.5lbs). It offers five hours' of battery life, HP claims. It goes on sale on 21 May in the US for around $1299 and up. ®

Never mind those time indications.
I went to the the applestore over 2 weeks ago to order an IPod. It said shipping in 8-10 days.
I't not even build yet much less shipped or arrived here.
Actually this always happens when I order something at the Apllestore. No order I've placed there was delivered in under 3 weeks yet.
Anyway, If supplies are dwindeling, it does mean that they still have some and can quickly pack em up and ship them, right?
It doesn't mean however that the new PB 's will be out before the WWDC. Remember 5gig IPods where also out for about 4 months before the new ones came up?
I have to say... the specs for that Compaq notebook sound pretty sweet. Why can't Apple make a Powerbook with similar features at that price point??? Oh, I forgot, they somehow feel the need to make 1/3rd markup over normal retail prices... In this market you really can't be pigheaded like that. When will Steve Jobs realize that you have to compete with the Compaqs and Dells of this world if you want to gain more than 3% market share?
