bought iBook, sell emac, buy iMac

I just bought a BSN (brand spankin new) iBook 12" today! I'm really excited about it...IWBAIAW (it will be arriving in a week)

anyway I am planning on selling my eMac now and to buy an iMac G5 in the near future. I feel this is the best setup I can get. Portability, BFB (bang for buck), etc. I think it sure beats just getting a powerbook and spending all that money for something I could just drop. BTFATTE (but thanks for all the tips everyone!) Hasta Luego

The G5 iMac is much faster than the eMac, the iBook and the PowerBook. I have the iBook & iMac set up and it's the best bang-for-your-bucks combo out there IMO. Good choice.

IHAG4PMAAIS. (I had a G4 PowerMac and an iBook setup.) IDNLTFAMCWNAIS (I didn't like the fact that my computers where not always in sync.) ISBAGAP (I sold both and got a PowerBook.) ILH1MBTH2 ( I like having one machine better than having too.) IIAPDT (It's a personal decision though.)

I'm biased in the matter... I love the iBook + iMac combo, but that's because I prefer working with a designated desktop and I like having OS X whenever I'm away.
