the powerbook will be supported for quite some time I should think as it runs on PowerPC processor like the PowerMac G5 and a lot of big companies and businesses still use and will use the Powermac G5 into the near future so I don't see Apple just dropping everything PB when the MacBook Pro is on general sale.

I feel this is accurate and in which by this time you will probably want a new computer any way, so if you want the powrbook now.. buy it.
