i want to buy a new power book, well i need a new power book. on my power book the dvd/cd rom no loger works, firewire dose not work, battry can't be removed becasue the case is dented & there is a small line of dead pixels at the bottem of the screen. its now 3.5 years old so apple care finnish a little while ago. as fare as i can see the power book has not changed in price or had better spec since januray. how often dose apple update the rang? just feel like i wasting money if i buy on now.

so was it January? forgot to mention air rang is not what it used to be, i think it might be something to do with the aerial but i dont want to take the back in case i cant get it back on! (because of the dents), it was bad enough getting back on when i first fitted the air port card and the lap was in one peace. got to say my machine has seen some action and i think an plastic lap top would of failed a long time ago!

Apple has been known to have a huge release event like yesterday, and then a week or two later update the speeds on current lines and make no big announcement for it. So it wouldn't surprise me if there were updates still to come.

That's true, and I sure hope this is one of those times.. I really want a new powerbook I saw a page advertising new powerbooks, but I couldnt tell if it was real or if someone was just having fun with reporting.. said new PowerBooks HD and they had a really smooth screen and better specs..
