I currently have a windows machine (yuck), that has a 1.66GHz processor, 1GB of ram, and a 64mb graphics card. I will be going to college next fall and making the deffinate switch to mac. My question is which one of these two options should I go with? 12" PB w/ 20" Apple Display 1.256GB DDR333 (256MB built-in + 1GB SO-DIMM) 80GB Ultra ATA drive @ 5400rpm SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW) Apple Cinema Display (20" flat panel) AirPort Extreme Card Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English 1.33GHz PowerPC G4 NVIDIA GeForce FX GO 5200 with 64MB DDR Video Memory 12.1-inch TFT Display TOTAL = $3,241 17" PB 1.5GHz PowerPC G4 with 128MB Graphics Memory 1GB DDR333 SDRAM - 1 SO-DIMM 80GB Ultra ATA drive @ 5400rpm SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW) AirPort Extreme Card Backlit Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English 17-inch TFT Display TOTAL = $2994 I would think some of the pros of the 12" w/ display is that I can take it to class and around campus comfortabley while being able to go back to the apartment and plug it into a 20" display. Cons of this might be not as fast as the 17" and a little more to keep up with. I think I would be ok with the speed though considering I am happy with the current speed and functionality of my current comp (minus the shi* OS) because all it is used for is AIM, Internet, Word, and itunes. Your thoughts and expierances would be much appreciated! Thank You!
