According to PowerPage sources Apple engineers are still having some problems with some aspects of the new Aluminum PowerBook 15-inch. The issues are not significant but they aren’t fixed yet either.
Motorola are trying their best to ramp up production of the PowerPC 7457 processors, but the yields are low, so they don’t want to start delivering them quite yet. There are still a few 15-Inch Ti’s out there in the channel sitting on shelves too.
The new 15.4-inch screen is really bright, and the nVidia graphics chip is pretty strong. Fan noise has been an issue though. The industrial design is really sharp, it fits right in between the 17 and the 12. It looks so good it will sell it self once the bugs are worked out of the machine.
As previously stated the current 1GHz PB17 is EOL (end of lifed) with revision B expected shortly.
