Yesterday, Power Computing spokesman Mike Rosenfelt confirmed that sales have been up since the buyout announcement this week. Although we've heard tales of Macintosh fans giving up on the platform in response to Apple's withdrawal of clone support, a strong contingent continues to purchase Power Computing Macs. The surge in sales may be related to the buyout announcement clarifying concerns about who will provide OS and hardware support for Power Computing clones and to the possibility of increased Macintosh prices in a world without Power Computing clones. Those interested in a high-end Power Computing machine should note that Power Computing plans a one-hour PowerHour special today. Enter the Power Computing phone queue (800/952-9246) or place an order on the Power Web site between 3:03 PM and 4:02 PM Central Time and Power will give you an extra 64 MB of RAM free (128 MB total) if you buy a specific PowerTower Pro 250. This sale is only applicable within the U.S.
