Well I bit.... I am going to school next week and I told myself if they didn't come out today I would buy. I got a 12" PowerBook with a Superdrive. Even if they do come out with new ones soon I need a computer for school and I got a really good deal.. What do you guys think..????
depends on where/from whom you ordered (if not picked up already?)
worst case, new model ships with more stuff for less money just after
effectively leaving you with instant "last generation" product just as new stuff replaces it, unless you want to take a hit in open-box return or pay >10% for restocking and hope new PB prices still net out a savings (such as if you're getting an Edu bundle with $300 off iPod as sweetener)
best case, new model announced... you cancel order and upgrade to more for less in same shipment
if you bought with a Credit Card, you should get an extra window to return or replace merchandise,
but the details of how long you can "wait" or "upgrade" your PB before you're "committed" to that model depend on terms and conditions from your vendor in your jurisdiction.
murbot seems to know a lot about the timing of product ordering -vs.- Apple New Product
as far as good computer for your needs (new models unseen)?
a Supadrive Footlong should do nicely for most tasks, especially with max RAM,
but to say it's the best choice depends what you'll be using it for
