Anyone at a guess wether(sp?) current pricing will continue over to the powerbook G5s?

whether is the correct spelling. :P

Apple typically keep the prices the same, or even more affordable, than previous revisions. A good example of this is comparing the price of the current Powerbooks, compared to older powerbooks when they were released 5 or more years ago.

I believe that the prices will be the same as current G4 prices, but likewise I am not expecting a G5 Powerbook until at least early 2006. :rolleyes:

Add (sic) to words you are unsure of, or know are incorrect, but anyway, this is a forum and not a spell checking factory.

And I think Ozi is right, however I think the new 17" G5 Powerbook will be one beefy computer, and for that reason will cost a bit more than the current. But anyway, that is a long way off!

I also suspect that there will be a huge demand for these, and that orders may take forever! Make sure that whatever you do, order the same day/hour that it's released!!!

I suspect that the wait for the G5 Powerbooks will be longer then the Mac mini.... Some patient customers are still waiting, 3 months later.

And I can safely assume that the G5 powerbook will have a much larger demand then the Mac mini will ever dream of.

While we're being nazis about english, '(sic)' is used by editors to indicate that something they have quoted was misspelled by the source, rathern than a typographical error by the journalist. What eudaemons used, '(sp?)', is the commonly accepted addition for indicating that you know the spelling is incorrect, and you are indicating as such.

New Generation of Hard sometimes means prices will go up a bit - but then drop dramatically in Rev. B. You do expect to pay premium for a new product.

Even worse; it indicates that you suspected that the spelling was incorrect, but were just too damn lazy to verify it. :unsure:

I am glad you were uncertain. A 'wether' is a neutered sheep :)

A friendly message from pedants 'r' us

In most cases, you can replace "whether" with "if".

Easier to spell.
