I'm very close to buying my first Mac (a Powerbook 15") and would like to time my purchase to get me the best price. I've been assuming that sometime after Christmas Apple would probably drop prices (or perhaps bump up CPU speed a bit). Does Apple traditionally do this? I know the PC's pretty regularly announce price drops around early Feb. So if anyone can offer me advice on this, I'd really appreciate it (I have read the buying advice and I know it's listed as Mid Cycle). And I am a graduate student with a family so every $ counts.
