    traditionally

    promotions like this usually mean new products/updates are nigh.

    re: traditionally

    Yes, it traditionally does. But those dates scare me, because if the sales run through March 27th, that means we have to wait that much longer for new products.

    dates

    more than likely, the dates correspond to the end of the fiscal quarter, not product cycles. Rebates and sales often end at or around that time.

    Nothing till April

    I'm afraid this means there won't be any updates to the PowerMac or iMac until after the promo ends on March 27th. This is just an enticement so Apple can move the remaining inventory by then.

    Wow, if you get scared about dates of rebate offers, you probably use a nightlight at night and cower under a table when someone knocks on the door.

    Who cares?

    It's funny why people are so concerned about Apple updates? Do people follow Toshiba or IBM waiting for laptop updates?

    I am in the market for a new PowerBook. While it'd be nice to have a big fat rebate, or have the latest and greatest, I'm going to buy it when I need it, and get weeks and weeks of use out of it while everyone else is waiting.

    the next day

    after buying your powerbook, they will come out with one that is twice as fast, and costs half as much, then you'll be crying like all the others!

    re: the next day

    And three times as buggy. It is better to buy at the end of a product cyclee when the price of the machine is cheaper, and the machine has gone through extensive testing, than the beginning.

    Toshiba or IBM

    they actually introduce more models so turn over seems higher as well they discount as time goes on. Not just the month before revs.

    A lot of us will be waiting for updated PowerMac G5s with a RevB motherboard. Thanks for the early-adopters experiences with RevA machines!!!
