New PowerBooks


Apple quietly released
New updated Powerbooks today
, upping the processor speed and adding iLife '05 to all models and a backlit keyboard to the higher-end models. This latest speed bump means probably another 4 to 6 months before the next bump. Traditionally, Apple announces new products on Tuesdays -- I believe that this Monday announcement might be because of their recent award of most recognized brand, and the publicity generated from this, as well as all the PowerBook G5 rumors that have been swirling about lately. Apple might be considering this the "last chance" to unload their inventory of G4s before the announcement of the G5. In any case, my 3 year Applecare coverage lasts until July, and hopefully the release of the G5 won't be too far after that.
