I’m looking for an Apple announcement around 18 October 2005 regarding the PowerBooks. Of course, I could be completely wrong, but from what I’ve been reading:

  • Amazon and MacMall’s rebates for select PowerMacs and laptops run out around then (to be fair, they had rebates that expired 6 September, and 27 September as well),
  • Apple has supposedly put a lot more laptops than normal on the refurbished section of their store (especially the UK store),
  • a person posted that when looking for open box Apple deals at a computer store, the manager told him to wait until mid-October,
  • some Apple refurbs are being replaced with new product (or product numbers),
  • specials and discount programs are slated to end around 8 October 2005,
  • and the buyer’s guide bar indicates that we’re due for a PowerBook upgrade.

Tell me I’m making a big deal over nothing that will happen and that I should just go ahead and get the refurbished PowerBook 17″ 1.67 with Superdrive today.
