TUESDAY July 20, 1999


Well, I talked to a number of mail order resellers and none are taking pre-order's for the soon-to-be-released consumer portable from Apple computer, yet. One said "There's no SKU no# in our system yet" another said "We don't expect them till around Christmas!" I then asked if anyone had their catalogs ready with the P1 in it and all said No or wouldn't confirm. Looking for any other clues, I inquired if any of the catalog sellers would be selling P1 specific Hardware and two said yes, one said he had no info and another said if available yes! So we'll have to see what P1 specific hardware will be coming out of the pipeline !!!


Reuters - Steve Jobs, the interim chief executive of Apple Computer Inc., is expected to unveil a eye-catching portable computer for consumers when he takes the stage at the giant Mac World Expo in New York Wednesday -- and he may have a few other surprises as well...

Mr. Pierce,Responds:

Thank you for mentioning us in your feature regarding Dartmouth and the P-1 laptop. It's important to note that Dartmouth has not tried to place orders for 1,200 P-1 laptops...



CBS Marketwatch New Apple Laptop Has Fans in Frenzy -

Judging from the anticipation in the Mac community, Apple's latest surprise
promises to be another sales splash - extending the company's comeback and
shaking up portable design just as its iMac personal computer prompted the
industry to rethink the clunky beige desktop...

From MacDisscussion -

an interesting turn of events but not really surprising, a Macintosh stronghold--
Dartmouth College, has requested 1200, of the yet to be released consumer
portable. Dartmouth hopes to be first on the list of orders for the machine so that
it can have them ready for incoming freshman....
