Take mrs. J/cat with you. You need a good "closer."<br><br>
Well... when you really think about it, you didn't miss out on a lot... it wasn't that huge of a discount. I wouldn't feel bad at all if I were you. Now, if it was a $500 price difference, and they bumped the iBook up to a G4... THEN i would be reeeeeeaaaally PISSED OFF!!! <br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!
Let's see, $200...for that money, he could have gotten :<br><br>- an iSub system<br>- about 3 or 4 games (MOH, Wolfenstein, etc)<br>- The Mac OSX 10.2 Family Pack<br>- Virtual PC 5 with XP Home edition<br>- He'd be $99 short of a 5-gig iPod<br><br>Or, (sucking up) he could have taken the lovely Mrs JC out for a night on the town!

I know if you would have ordered the iBook via Apple online, they would have pushed you back to the new one...happened to me before. They need and may do the same thing at the store. BTW, can it be returned and then get the new one?<br><br>
it goes both ways. When I bought the iMac, not very soon after I received it the price went up by $100 so I won that way. This time I was on the other side of the price change. This really isn't that big of a deal for me, I've been buying computers for 18 years and every single one has gotten cheaper and faster after I bought it.<br><br>I'll ask when I'm at the Apple store, but when I bought the iBook I thought it was good value for the money and the price change at the store hasn't made the iBook any less quality.<br><br>C'est la vie, I knew about the rumors and could have waited... <br><br>(taking out MrsJC is great idea, there's a new restaurant down the street that used to be our fav until the change in name/ownership)<br><br>
*sigh* I wish more people had that attitude. For some, it seems they wish progress to stop for a couple of years until they want to upgrade.<br><br>Good for you. Enjoy that new iBook. I still like my iBook 466, although that screen is gettin' kinda small.<br><br>
it's a must have attitude. Afterall I just switched this year, bought three macs and they are all outdated!<br><br>15" iMac - you can buy a 17" for the same money I paid<br>dual 1gig PowerMac - you can buy a dual 1.25Ghz<br>600Mhz iBook - you can buy a 700Mhz iBook.<br><br>but, I factor in the fact that I enjoyed the use of these machines for the last couple months (except for the iBook) and they are all still fantastic computers.<br><br>
I still have a 400mhz G4 (the original G4 Sawtooth model)... love using it for web, mail, FTP, and trying out new apps so I don't mess up my Dual Ghz... they retain their usefullness for a long time!<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!
So your iBook and your dual gig are 'obsolete' by a combined 350 mhz, and you're missing two inches from your new iMac...<br><br>'World's smallest fiddle' award goes to JonnyCat!!!! <br><br>[color:red]Hold on...it's time for a</font color=red><br>
