Well, I finally pulled the trigger two weeks ago and ordered a 17" Powerbook (from Amazon - running a $200 off $2k or more, plus no sales tax or shipping). I also ordered .mac and Office X at the same time (discounts on both for purchasing at the same time as a computer). Well....I've received the .mac box and the Office X box this week. Now, all that's left is the PowerBook. The two boxes are just tormenting me...sitting on the desk with no place to load. According to Amazon, the PowerBood will be released on the 15th, and then shipped shortly after. I'm on vacation next week, so hopefully I'll return the week of the 25th to a larger box from Amazon.
