Canadian PowerBooks

We've just heard from Pythaeus that Apple Canada is not yet selling the PowerBook 170 configuration with 4 MB of RAM and an 80 MB drive (with or without the internal fax/data modem), which is the highest end PowerBook available from Apple. Apparently Apple Canada will announce the modem-less version of the 170 4/80 at the end of this month, so any of our Canadian readers who are considering purchasing a PowerBook 170 may wish to hold off for until that model becomes available. Interestingly, the PowerBook 140 4/80 is available in Canada now - wonder what the difference is? In any event, keep that little fact in mind if you've decided that you just have to have a 170 in the near future.
