Need help fast! Have to choose between 2 computers Ibook or Powerbook
Hi, im looking for a portable mac to do my web stuff with, just needs to be quick enough for basic photo editing (i run a car lot, just snap photos, fix em up a little, post to the web, update listings, etc)
I have found 2, and they are similair in price. I am at a toss up about which one would be better:
Computer 1: iBook 800mhz 128mb ram 285$
Computer 2: Powerbook G4 667mhz 256mb ram 375$
Quick edit: Computer 3 iBook 500mhz 64mb ram 175$
Besides the obvious size differences (Does anyone have a pic comparing the 2 side by side btw?), is the powerbook worth the extra nearly hundred bucks?
Portability is important, and the powerbook does have a 1 up because it has pcmcia slots (cheaper wireless than airport card). Its also more expandable.
But its slower, processor wise.
Quick edit: He offered me one other system, the ibook 500mhz, its quite a bit cheaper, should i just save my money, grab the cheaper one? And put my money towards an intel ibook when released? Would the 500mhz fulfill my needs for the next 3-4 months while i wait?
I will be using os x exclusively.
One last ? Is Quartz express supported on both models?? I think so, but just double checking
Anyone care to weigh the pros and cons of each for me since i have never owned either?
