    Been Looking for MacWorld Info...
    I have been looking for MacWorld news... so far saw a cool DUAL G4 EMAC with a gig of RAM, 80 Gig HD, and 4X superdrive - $989 at www.smalldog.com ... and the Apple Web site store is updating their information - so figure that we might see reflection of what Steve Jobs is saying...

    can't wait as I am soon going to pull the trigger on a PowerBook (I think - depends on the MacWorld news)...

    my bad - wrong info...
    yeah... not a DUALEE... must have been wishful thinking, but I coulda swore that last evening the advertisement said dual G4... sorry for the misinformation... can't wait to see what the Apple Store updates with... will they lower PowerBook prices, or are they selling too many at current price point to do that?

    Cool RMAN - great notes - THANKS!!
    the new ILIFE looks and sounds really great! Love that they had Sheryl Crow (spelling?) talking about how good it is... I can't wait to get my hands on my brand spankn new (and VERY FIRST) Mac - think it will be a 15" Powerbook, Superdrive, 512 M RAM on one chip, Apple Care Protection, .MAC...

    yeah, with GarageBand - maybe I will realize my full potential as a Rock&Roll musician - lead guitarist... or was that just one of my wild_*** fantasies?
