New powerbook

I ordered a new 15" powerbook. I like my old 17" but the fact of the matter is, it's just NOT portable. So it was time to get a new one (after all it's been a whole 2 years since I bought the last one ;) Two stories. First I order right after the announcement of the video ipod. I waited patiently because there was speculation that they were going to announce a new model of powerbook (which they didn't). However a week later (after I ordered) they did make that announcement so I had a new powerbook in the order queue that was already obsolete... sigh... No worries, Apple is the coolest company in the world:

Wow. Second, I've been watching my package slowly wend it's way across the world. It started in Shanghai! Now it's stuck in a "clearance delay". Interesting... I guess the goverment has to check it to make sure there isn't anything nefarious on the hard drive?

  1. Ah, Apple--what a wonderful company! Sharing a 14" ibook with Amy has been great, but, needless to say, I am looking forward to the can't-come-soon enough day when we can purchase a powerbook. We've already discussed it--Amy can keep the ibook (you know with all of our docs on it, a much easier machine to handle really, much more safe) and I'll get the new powerbook and slave away at transferring docs over. Oh, well... ;)
