Rumor Correction

Rumor Correction -- Oops - Pythaeus wrote to tell us that Apple's forthcoming active-matrix color LCD PowerBook will be called the 180c and will sport a 640 by 480 screen, as opposed to the 640 by 400 LCD screens we are used to on the PowerBooks. Why do I suspect that the 180c will sell as fast as Apple can make them despite a ludicrous price? The PowerBooks strike me the best answer to the "PC's are cheaper" argument. When it comes right down to it, the more-capable and thus more-expensive PowerBooks have consistently outsold the cheaper PowerBooks, excepting the fire sale PowerBook 100s, of course.
