Seems you have bad luck with getting new apple hardware to be bale to hack it.
So did you get your hands on a Powerbook5,6 meanwhile ? ;-)
I though you had mentioned that a friend of yours had ordered one
and it would be ironic if this also would have gone back apple...

I am having a post Februaray Powerbook5,6 here with German keyboard
and having sound and better sleep support would be great.

Someone told me that xorg releases could do external SVGA mirroring
for the previous powerbook models 15" with ati. Did somebody test this
with the new February Powerbook 15" model?
