thought you wanted to go down memory lane,
anyway wonder how much the price will drop on the old models, like mine will be? Just got it in November. Oh well, I'm very happy with mine.

It doesn't look like they dropped the prices on all models just the base 12"

personnally i never said that there was gonna be a g5 or dual core powerbook, i was one who said there wouldn't be either also, i was just letting people know that the updates were out, since alot of people were talkin about powerbooks being out of stock and so forth, i guess that puts me in the sane catagory, i'm waitiong on tiger to come out before a make a move

they did drop that prices on all the models i think. imo they only did this to get the most profit they can before they release the g5 powerbooks when they release tiger.

I envy the owners for the scrolling touchpad. Other than that, not too groundbreaking!

the scrolling trackpad would be nice, but function page up/down works for me

Good to see 512ram standard. They didn't change the price on the 15" at all but now every 15" comes w/ a "brighter" backlit keyboard. I'm also envious of the trackpad thing, the hard drive protection deal I prob wouldn't need but would feel better about having.

Maybe it's just cause I got the free version but sidetrack was absolutely worthless for me. I could never get it to work and it was horrible.
