iBook, MBP, or wait?
I'm in the market for an Apple laptop, finally making the switch from a PC. I've been lurking in the forums for a while now, but I still haven't quite got the feel for the model I should invest in.
Here's the intended use:
General web browsing
Image importing and editing for an advanced amateur photographer (DSLR work)
Light design work in Illustrator and InDesign
My price ceiling absolutely maxes out at about $2300. I've been burned on hardware before, so I'm seriously considering the extended warranty - is this worth it?
So what should I look at? A PB or a MBP? Or would a basic iBook with increased RAM get the job done?
Thanks for the help.

While not doubting the PowerPC Macs for a second, I'd go for a Intel Mac when switching over from PC to Mac(which is what I did), which means it's either MBP or wait since you need a laptop.

i would wait...just in case. you never know if the new iBook will be just what you need for a much lower price. but like you said, your budget is 2300 so you could definitely get the MBP if you wanted to.
