    Advice to help my worst fear


    I'm going to buy a Powerbook g4 during the month of June, but once I get it you kno it would stink if right then the powerbook g5 laptops came out, I kind of want the best of technology for a while. So should I wait for Powerbook g5? Or not?

    Thanks in advance

    Honestly, if you wait for a G5 PowerBook, you will be waiting a long time. I would prefer to buy the machine as soon as possible, so I could begin enjoying it immediately.

    G5 PowerBooks won't be out until well into next year I think. Apple is having a lot of trouble trying to fit a G5 into a PowerBook without totally eating the battery life and giving people second degree burns. Just buy when you are ready.

    I agree. Just buy the computer when you are ready, the G4 PB is still fast.

    yea, PBs really do hold value well. My G4 is really fast too. Buy now, I really don't expect a G5 PB anytime soon. Just do a google search to learn more abt. the G5 and you'll consistently hear about how hot it runs, I really don't think it will be put in a PB for a while. Also, when/if it is ever put into a PB, it will most likely be a "scaled down" version. Plus, if your buying in June, I mean, the current line of Powerbooks just came out a cpl. months ago. Buy now.

    I like http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/ it tells you the dates of the last couple times they were updated, gives a pretty decent idea about when a new model might be coming. I would wait for Tiger, I wouldn't wait for a G5 though. I am thinking a dual core G4 might come before G5.
