If you have been trying to purchase a PowerBook G4 you have probably been met little or zero inventory remaining in the channel and some blank stares when asking about when there will be more. The PowerPage has confirmed that Apple will announce two new PowerBook configurations on Tuesday, 30 April 2002:

  • 667 MHz G4, 20 GB HDD, 256 MB RAM, DVD/CD-RW, US$2499
  • 800 MHz G4, 40 GB HDD, 512 MB RAM, DVD/CD-RW, US$3199

The current 667 and 550 MHz PowerBook G4 will drop by US$100 minimum advertised price (MAP) to clean out any remaining inventory in the channel. These new PowerBooks will be functionally identical to the current line of TiBooks and aren’t likely to ship with built-in Bluetooth or any of the other enhancements we mentioned in our previous article today. You’ll have to wait for summer for those.

You heard it here first.
