I've been thinking of replacing my now geriatric Hewlett Packard laptop for some time, and the idea of getting a nice Unix laptop has been getting more and more attractive.
So I spent an hour in the local Apple dealer today picking out some hardware. "I'll take one of those", finally.
"Oh, we don't actually have any in stock, sir. Besides, you wouldn't want to buy one today of all days." …and the salesguy looked at his watch.
I guess everyone except me knew that Steve Jobs was giving his famed New Things keynote at MacWorld in a few minutes. D'oh.
[Updated: turns out Apple didn't update the Powerbook line after all. The new Mac mini is pretty cute, though, and worth looking at for a small headless Unix box.]
