Apple Price Cuts -- Last week, Apple announced $200 price cuts on Performa 6360 and 6400-series computers, but (more significantly) cut some prices in the PowerBook 1400 line by more than 30 percent. A PowerBook 1400cs/117 system now starts at $1,700 ($300 more for one with a CD-ROM), with prices extending to $3,200 for a PowerBook 1400c/133. If you've been putting off buying a PowerBook and the 3400s are too expensive, it might be a good time to re-examine the PowerBook 1400. Meanwhile, rumors continue to circulate about the PowerBook 2400, a 4.2-pound subnotebook developed by Apple and IBM, but it still appears its availability in the U.S. will be quite limited. [GD]
