PowerBook G4 Deals

Wednesday, August 20th, 2003 · 1 Comment

As I wrote on Monday, I had narrowed down my choice in a new Mac either to an iBook or a PowerBook G4. After tons of great input (thank you!), the choice is obvious: PowerBook G4.

But the bummer now is that the 12″ refurbs on the Apple store that were going for $1399 just two days ago are now gone. I guess I should’ve jumped on that. The good news, though, is that the specs on Apple’s latest PowerBooks have leaked to the rumor sites, which means the official announcement can’t be far behind. Once that happens, I’m hoping for an even better deal on a refurbed PowerBook G4. So now the waiting game begins.

This one is still available, but a bit more than I’d like to spend (and I don’t think I really need the DVD-R capability of the SuperDrive):

    I think the waiting game is the best to play at the moment, as I’ve seen RAM prices and Processor prices rise by up to 20% in two weeks!

    Now is definitely not the time to buy IT hardware unless absolutely necessary. I’m guessing 2-4 weeks will be a bit more consumer-friendly…
