Does anyone have any idea when to expect a jump in the Powerbook. No where I've looked has any in stock and they don't know when they will get them. I am looking to get the ibook from my school cause of the great prices, but when a new product comes down, they will drop the 550 price to something that is more affordable for me. I would really love the G4 for a lot of the things I'm looking to do but not right now. It seems the best thing for me to do right now would be to get a G4 iMac with SuperDrive in a couple of months and an iBook G3 12 inch combo for the portability that I will need right now. I can do all of the editing at home but need the portability of a computer to travel. Does this sound like an insane idea or would this be a good choice? The superdrive really attracts me to the new iMac. Since I can't get one on the G4 Powerbook, I think I should go the way I'm thinking. Could someone please let me know if I'm doing this all wrong. Oh and by the way, this will be my first Mac purchase. Ever since I started reading these columns and looking for a notebook, I've fell in love. I want them all!!!
