Everyone seems to love the 14" iBooks despite much bashing here on the forums.... I went to the apple store yesterday with my mother to pick up my computer for college! A girl I knew from school was trying to pick up 14" iBook and the guy at the counter said that they were all sold out. The way the guy was talking about the 14"ers gave me the impression that they have always been a very popular item and were now especially in high demand because of school starting up soon. 2 out of the 3 friends that have gotten apple laptops have gotten the 14". However I do agree with everyone that the 12" makes more sense. I'm just surprised they are so popular.... Anways, I was there to pickup my 12" PB superdrive but left empty-handed because I didn't have a picture ID necessary to get the student discount! d'oh!
