    Specs:
    Aluminium Macbook 2.4 Ghz 4GB RAM, SSD 24" Samsung Display, iPhone 4, iPad 2
    FINALLY Apple have realised that since EVERY laptop on the market comes with wifi as a standard it's a good idea to add it to ibooks as well...sheesh!

    Right that's the iBook sorted, I wonder when the powerbook will get a kick in the ****?

    Glad to see that my iBook is only slightly outdated... i mean .2 Ghz is not a big deal right?

    I panicked reading that. My boyfriend just ordered one, shipping tommorrow apparently.

    But I just checked and he got email saying his one will be one of the new ones for the new price - even though he ordered the old type two weeks ago!

    Quite lucky. And now we understand why the shipping date got moved twice, to tommorrow, as well.

    meh, they didnt upgrade the video card so it still won't be able to take advantage of Core Image when Tiger is released.

    I can't believe they're only $1299 Canadian now! They used to be $1499.

    Hmm, well... if I were you, I WOULD be worried! .2 GHz is exactly an increase of 20% compared to 1GHz...
    No, I'm kidding... the entire gain would of course be a lot less than that, so you're definitely not that much outdated with yours. :p
