interesting.... I purchased a 1GHZ powerbook a few weeks ago and it was defective. A replacement was ordered for me at the Apple Store in Tyson's Corner, VA this past Thursday. Apple Care (higher ed) told me that it would not arrive for 5 -7 business days - clearly after MWSF. He said that it would have to come off of the assembly line, but nothing about a new configuration.
Bye Bye Thinkpad T23, Hello 17" powerbook!!! Anyone know if a 128mb radeon 9700 mobility is released yet?
Also what is the largest Laptop hard drive these days?
Thanks guys, I am switching back to mac (The thinkpad was good for a month, but now it makes so much NOISE!!!)
is turning into a crackhouse of silly-arse rumors. Hmm, maybe it will be a 17" PowerTablet PVR iPhoto viewer music player bluetooth/802.11g-equipped UBER GIZMO. Yeah, that's the ticket... I have it on reliable sources. Har! It's a video-phone as well, of course.
I don't see how this would help Apple. A 12" powerbook would hinder iBook sales, or vise versa. A 17" powerbook? You might as well carry an iMac around. My powerbook is nice but bordering on too big. 17" Wow that would be big.
Don't know about the ultraportable...that would be the end of the iBook, or else it would have to be very expensive so that it would not canibalize iBook sales. But then who would pay in the high thousands for one when they could pay a little more for a full-sized PBG4.
