View Full Version : NO stock in Adelaide or Australia?

20th August 2004, 04:48 PM
I went to the apple center and Next Byte in Adelaide a few hours ago.

I've been told there is no stock for PB 15" Australia wide.

Poor apple! I've placed an order and have to wait at least 2 weeks. :(

Poor Apple? Nah - poor you. :)

Yeah, mine has been delayed, been told to expect it next week.

They are probably all having a battery change... :rolleyes:
(All the 15"pB's that is, not Apple.)

The bettary problem on PB 15" really makes me feel so uncomfortable. Hope mine comes with a better one!!!

Hope your pBook doesn't act up like my iBook...check my post 'HELP!!..." and try not to sweat too much...

i think the battery issue only effected earlier 15" AlBooks and not anything in production at the moment - mine and my mate's at work are fine and we got ours about 4-8 weeks ago.

apple's supply chain is just not very effecient sometimes :(

hope the wait isn't too long, but ring around some of the other resellers, especially the online ones...macshack.com.au, macmall.com.au, apple.com.au

I checked and the battery problem doesn't affect any of the current models of pBook. The batteries in the current model pBooks are model No: A1078 and thus not affected by the "catch on fire and burn to death" problem that has been reported. Do not fear, little ones. :P

Perhaps they are all being retrofitted with dual core Freescale G4s? ;p

I just rang David Jones in Melbourne to see where my powerbook that I ordered 2 weeks is. I upgraded the RAM, video card and hard drive and they said it will be up to another 2 weeks because of delays :(
