I was looking at an Apple stock price chart and the price the stock was at when I've purchased a computer. Both times I probably should have spent the money on the stock instead of the computer. <br><br>I've been thinking about buying a new computer. Looking at how close the stock price was the two times I bought a computer, could doing this jinx Apple's stock price this time around?<br><br> <br><br>Old farts, the hidden caulk of civilization.

I think the "I want my iPhone now" orgasm that is going on will push the stock for a couple of weeks. Then everyone will be sick and tired of hearing "iphone iphone iphone" and nobody has it. So could you buy your computer around mid Feb? Jobs know there will be a let down and so will be revealing new models then anyway. <br><br><br><br><br><br>
Yup, before mid Feb. Apple does not announce speed bumps at big meetings anymore. Motorola to Intel yes but not revisions. So I at least am hoping they come out with the ultra thin 12 inch Powerbook and maybe a few other things in the next week or two. I am hearing disgruntaledness around the kool Aid pitcher right now. "Apple doesn't make computers anymore." This will soon be quelled.<br><br><br>Or not.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Whenever I buy a computer I do look at where in the life cycle is that last update. Find them spelled out for each model at the MacRumor Buyers Guide <br><br>MacBooks are a definite safe buy but these neutral calls on the other have caveats. One is the small Powerbook. It hasn't existed since the poor old 12 inch noninterl powerbook I am using right now. The real small fast and sexy MBP has to come out soon. <br><br>The other caveat is the "average" cycle is getting shorter and I bet from all the hype, 2007 we get real short cycles with new stuff in each model. And not just speed bump. Not iPhone crazy cool but something different.<br><br><br><br><br>
