Mystery solved. From page 24 of Apple Nova's 26-page pb thread.

I heard the delay was because they were putting double the love into every powerbook! You just can't come up with that much love all at once! Damn the supply chain!!!

Wouldn't an iMac be easier to steal? It's not as bulky as the eMac.

Powerbooks declared End of Life.

That's it. Really, it's the end of the powerbook. There will not be new ones.

Anyway, All I care about is that they get them out before May!!!!

Since you're already fantasizing about that new apple laptop...

Hope it's not a repost, though I doubt you guys'd let this one slip by. Quali-T.

Couldn't care less (I already have access to all four models on those pictures...).

What I really want is a *PBG5* (although I wouldn't complain if it came with one of those new iPod shuffle chicks).

No-one seems to be mentioning the eMac as much now. The Powerbook is obviously due to be updated soon, as it has such long shipping times now, but the eMac is still same business day delivery.

I was really hoping Apple would decide one way or the other what it's doing with the eMac line now the Mini is here.

I see future for the eMac, people in education who want a cheap mac with a CRT screen. But the mini mac is the same without the screen. Apple is removing possible profits from the education sector by allowing them to purchase without a screen, however, there also allowing more people to buy because of the flexibility. At the moment Apple might as well keep the eMac going, if it sells really well i'm sure they'll update it, of it doesn't sell they wont. We may see a 1.42 GHz upgrade soon.

nope, it's because it looks like she's strolled in from a bondage convention* going on in the next hall, but the macheads were all like, hey, just get in the picture anyway

*important: this is not to say that they arent people (guys or gals, hot or not or whatever) that aren't into both BDSM and Macs.
post #261 of 316
Thanks guys.......... there's some really hot men in those pictures Anyway.... I had class last night and stopped in my good old University computer store. I was told that apple is not accepting anymore powerbook orders until the spring pricing is out. They were told last Tuesday, so their expecting it any day now. I have a deposit down so hopefully when they start shipping my school computers I'll be the first to get one. I never thought spending $3000 would be sooooooo hard.

My favorites are the redhead, the guy who looks like he's deliviring a pizza (second row, red laptop case) who's oggling the redhead, and Special Ed in the middle wearing his Special Ed iSight.

yeah my modern mac life really started back in '2001 in San Francisco when my first girlfriend read Rumi to me from her black PowerBook G3... i was like, i've never seen this before in the PC world, 'coz before that i was a PC nerd. since that fateful moment i've been a *ahem* sexy *ahem* mac dude

ah, she was a beautiful spiritual creative person...

ah... but it's not whether you use pc or mac, it's who you are....
NOT !!!!!

Judging from what the panel above the door says, I would say this guy is just outside, perhaps under direct sunlight.

This is not the case.

I happened to have been the passer-bye that this group drafted to take this picture. I do know the truth regarding x-ray guy.

And it isn't pretty.

i think this will be good, particularly if it is a measly 167mhz speed bump on the G4, powerbook is apple's achilles heel right now and weakest value offering. GPU bump is always good. Anyone heard about the new nVidia GoXXXfx-something or other though?

luckily, Apple's got some time with all the SwitchBait (Mac mini, iPod everything, iMac, iBook) out there, which is also keeping analysts and shareholders distracted, but mobile professionals cannot be ignored for too much longer... unless somehow that target audience has become less important to apple...

when the 'real' G5 powerbook comes out, it's gotta be carbon-fibre, silver-black metallic, G5 with thermal problemas sorted outt....
it's gotta be real you go to a cafe, you open up your super sexy f8ck-off laptop, and be like, you centrino-sonoma-or-whatever losers can kiss my f8cking asss... check this baby out. Macs rule, end of story.

unless Apple feels that the PoweBook 'halo' effect is not worth that much anymore to their professional offerings, brand value, revenue or profits...

anyone know what the scene/market data is on laptops nowadays? maybe Apple is confident that the iBook is a strong enough offering at the moment?
post #271 of 316
If we do not see a G4 Powerbook this coming Tuesday, the chances of a G5 Powerbook goes up dramatically. Let's face it, a slight boost G4 could have been available easily over a month ago when the chips were made available in the upgrade market.

The supply of 1.5 G4's have dried up and its just too important a profit center for sales to come to a halt. I'm more optimistic about a G5 with each passing week, this Tuesday being a defining moment.
post #272 of 316
It has to come out this Tuesday, there are no powerbooks anywhere. I really don't think apple wants to piss off the consumer. They probably wanted the new mac mini to shine and then bring out the new powerbooks.

To be Honest...... if they don't come out on Tuesday, I'll be pissed since i'm switching from a PC. I could have a dell here by Tuesday but I sit here waiting for my new apple. Sad

Keep the faith, bro, just think, you'll be stuck with that Dell for a few years when in a few weeks you might have a phat carbon-fibre G5 powerBook

I'm not really helping, am I?

*lights up a ciggie* All the best, bro

Apple want to sell more laptops as they make more profits from them. They have a 50% sale of laptops - which is high and they want it higher. PowerBooks always undersell iBooks and iMacs always oversell PowerMacs. That's the way it is. Consumers buy more goods. Apple is not going to abandon it's professional laptop line. Although they have left it alone too long. G5 is taking too long, they want to release the G4 as late as possible to allow a long enough gap to release G5s.

When shipping goes 7-10 days it means either there is very high demand or they're running out. Someone in Finland (who posted above) has had their order delayed twice!

gotcha... thanks mate for clarifying. man, apple distribution has faced some major challenges last year and continues this year... i just don't know if that's necessarily a good thingk.
i've heard some horror stories in australia.... when i bought me gear in australia i always checked with reliable dealers if they could get it ready in nothing less than 3 days, otherwise i'd investigate getting a different model...

when in sydney though it helped having 2 apple dealers 1 block away from my house, if you can believe it...! it was hella fun *but exhausting* walking past the cafes with a bigass apple display box... or when the van turned up outside my door and a phat g5 box was gently unloaded in full view of cafe patrons and neighbours ah... the fabulous ghetto of SurryHills, Sydney, Australia. Hard to sleep if you were home on fri or sat nights though, with all the screaming drunk partygoers and what not...

sounds like fun though! I wish I had an Apple dealer, the nearest I've got is Regent Street (90 miles away)! I suppose Dixons and PCWorld are supposed dealers but they don't sell everything, have any knowledge, up to date products or built to order options!

I don't think it will happen until every dot on PowerBookCentral.com's website is red, meaning out of stock.

There are always some PowerBooks left so that customers can buy the old version cheaper. I think Monday or Tuesday - they'll be a .Mac announcement on Monday - why else spend over 24 hours servicing it?
