I can either buy a refurnished 12 inch Powerbook Combo, or a 14 inch iBook.

In your opinion, which one should I get? :D

Powerbook. Unless the specs on the iBook are higher, but most likely not. The iBook 14 inch has the same resolution as the 12 inch. The Powerbook would be a better buy if you want more portability as it's smaller.

Most people will tell you to buy the 12" Powerbook, but it comes down to what you want. I bought a 14" iBook even though I could have bought a 12" Powerbook because the screen is bigger and more comfortable for me to look at (even though the resolution is the same). Portability is not a problem even though it's 14". If you plan on using an external display, you might want a Powerbook. But if you are interested in just using the laptop itself for everyday purposes, I'll say the iBook does a fantastic job at that.
