New PowerBook Comments -- In regard to the upcoming release of new PowerBooks mentioned in TidBITS #222, Dave Hirsh <firstname.lastname@example.org> warns: "The 9.5" color active matrix screens that the 540 will use are probably going to suffer the same supply problems that IBM has with the ThinkPad 750Cs. The yields on 9.5" versus the current 8.5" displays are much lower. This keeps supplies tight and prices high." In addition, a few people pointed out since the new 68LC040 PowerBooks don't have floating point units, and since it appears that Apple plans to eliminates the 68030 PowerBooks that have floating point units, the immediate future looks bare for people who want a new PowerBook and need an FPU.
