I just sold my current 12" powerbook online at ebay today. I got it new last week so I got what i paid... (almost)

So i ordered a new 12" model with a superdrive(had the combo before). The estimated SHIP is on or before tuesday.

Anyone receive a 12" new model yet? Dead pixels?

Plus how are apple's estimated ship times?? I usually pick up in the apple store.

Hah, I was wondering if you were kicking yourself. You've not had much luck with your laptop purchasing, have you?

I picked mine up at the Apple store, actually. I called an hour before I got there and they said they had plenty in stock.

I use final cut pro on my G5 and I'll be getting my 12" powerbook delivered in a week or two. The way I see it working on a 12" screen isn't the issue; I would say do the specs meet the intensity of video editing you intend to do?

it's a beatiful machine i'll tell you. if you get the Tucano case like i have. It's just SOO freaking portable. tonight i visited some friends about an hour away. put my powerbook in the tucano sleeve. and put the tiny power supply in my pocket. they thought i was carrying a book in to the house. it was great. (everyone had the googly eyes when i showed then expose with 15 windows open...eeehhhh ahhhhhhh)

hmmm, went to the apple store in my area and they have NO powerbooks in stock. i don't get it! are they selling this fast? The only one they have is ONE 15" model with combo drive.

plenty of iBooks but no powerbooks or mac minis...

I use Final Cut on my 12" for a lot of editing things and it gets the job done fine -- when I need somre more space I just split screen it. My 12" has enough juice to get er done.
