    while I have no evidence for why(except for MOSR), I still say definitely because I'm tired of waiting

    Agreed.





    The question is though, what time would they update it...9 EST?

    Tuesday the 19th NOT Monday. High probablility. Take some attention off the G5 and still enough time left for School starters.

    It won't happen.



    Apple is discontinuing the entire Powerbook line.







    Okay...the first part is true the second is false...

    I only understand one percent of such conflicted statements half the time.



    *****



    The following rumors of PowerBook updates are true. And by true, I mean false. They're all lies. But they're entertaining lies! And in the end, isn't that what really matters? The answer is no.

    Yeah, cause it's good to not have all eyes on the "world's fastest personal computer" at all times

    No, it's just that most of us, at least I, have memorized the G5's specs down to the loacations of all 9 fans. I need something new.



    Like displays, maybe?

    Would you mind listing the 9 fan locations? I can only count 7 or 8 from all the photos I've ever seen. Thanks.

    12": 3-5 days



    15": 5-7 days



    17": same day



    Good things come to those who wait...

    Actually, Apple has discounted the 15 and 17 PB line at the Fed Employee store. If you click select, you will see a $150 promotional discount on the 17 and $100 on the 15.

    Well the one that most people miss is the power supply fan, which isn't visible in the PR "door-off" photo. That should bring you up to 9.

    Actually, an update on Monday has zero probability. The question is whether there will be an update on Tuesday or not.
  • Reply 17 of 73
    Well, maybe the question should have been worded "Tuesday" instead of "Monday." Regardless, the main point still made it. So just vote!

    I'm going to officially go on record and say "no". I really don't they'll come this week (August 18-22).



    Hope I'm wrong.
