The 500 Dollar Lie

This isn't news or rumours, this is a little rant. ;) All over the net, reviews of the 12" PowerBook are rolling in. And everybody seems to feel the urge to tell the 500 Dollar Lie. Huh? You ask... Well, they all say "This is the cheapest PowerBook ever!" and ignore the very first PowerBook I ever bought: The Macintosh PowerBook 150 (introduced in July 1994, replaced in October 1995). Yes, that baby only set you back 1300 USD at that time, while the 12" PowerBook G4 sets you back a whopping 1800 USD. End of this little rant. (fryke)
