PowerBook Price Drop -- When Apple lowers prices, it often heralds the upcoming release of new models. Even so, if you've had your eyes on a 500-series PowerBook, you might want to check out the new pricing. Effective since 13-Feb-95, Apple has reduced prices 14 to 17 percent for models sold in the U.S. (Sorry, we don't have information about outside the U.S.) To sweeten the deal, Apple also plans to give away a free carrying case with any PowerBook purchased from 15-Feb-95 through 31-Mar-95. The table below shows official "Apple Price" pricing information for the price reduction. [TJE]
Spin Through Toolbar View Options
Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.
But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.
