Anyone want a 12" PowerBook?

I can feel the resale value of my 12" PowerBook, just over two years old, plummeting by the minute! As many of you are already aware, exactly the laptop I've been waiting for was introduced this morning. The 13" MacBook is an Intel Core Duo laptop with a 13.3" wide-format screen, and it comes in white or black.

No, I'm probably not going to buy black, much as I'd like to, because there's a $150 price premium! (It's a $200 price difference that gives you black plus an 80GB instead of 60GB hard drive, which is otherwise $49 extra, I think.)

( My TidBITS article on the MacBook... )

Since these start at $1049 (academic price), it's quite affordable. Haven't clicked the button yet, but I'm pretty sure I will soon. Just have to think about how much I'm spending on upcoming travels to decide when. :-) Anyway, I will be selling my 12" PowerBook G4, so if you don't need the latest and greatest, let me know if you're interested.
