    I went ahead and bought my first powerbook 12.1in (still sealed in box) and God I hope Apple doesn't have a new 12.1in PB for at least 3 months so I dont feel bad. :)

    Anyways, about upgrading ram. I bought a stick of 512mb PNY 2700. I was told by the Apple guy that this ram would work. Is he wrong? It was on sale so its a good price.

    If it's a SO-DIMM (Small Outline-DIMM) you're in luck. If it's a regular sized dimm it won't fit.

    We'll never know when apple releases new machines, but most people are thinking that new powerbooks will be introduced under MWSF (mid-January), when they are availiable is another question...

    The 12-inch Powerbooks are very capable machines and I have had one for five months now and it has been great so far!

    Updates happen :)

    The use that you'll get out of our PB will help out weigh the disappointment on a new release. What is worse is when they release just weeks after you buy. :(

    Yeah and that's just what I don't want. I can be less hurt if the PB came out in Feb or March, but if it comes out in Jan, I'll cry. :)
    That happened to me already with a number of items I bought. hehe.

    Yup, laptop sodimm. I may take back my laptop to apple and get the superdrive version.
