    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.

    It's good to go on holiday, but in your case it's gonna be even better when you return home!
    Congratulations, and have fun with it!

    Apple's pretty perfectionistic - arguable the most so in the industry, look at it as a good thing that it has taken this long - it gives them time to do it right.

    Yeah, that's not ideal, and it's only perspective, but, it's a good perspective :D

    Which would you rather, no 17PB but a good perspective on it, or a bad perspective and still no 17PB.

    Personally, I prefer good perspective in a situation I have no control over. :)

    Yeah...I'm not really in any hurry. I've been thinking about switching since the announcement, and have been spending the past two months reading and researching.

    I'm not sure if Amazon will get a large number of units once they're released, and I've got no idea where I fall in their distribution I might still be waiting another month or so.
