I am newbie to mac . I plan to buy a 12 " PB G4 or a 14" iBook G4 (falls within my price range). I need help deciding which one to buy! I am right now leaning towards the 12" PB. I mainily plan to use it for java/python development (for school projects). While browsing for the laptops I noticed that ATI Radeon 9200 is offered with iBook Ge Force go 200 is offered with PB which one is better with respect to performance? Are they pretty much the same.. Its unlikely that I'd be watching movies or playing computation intensive game on the power mac, so should I even bother with the performace of the graphics card? The other difference I see between the 14 " & the 12 " is the L2 cache, ibook has 256 Mb and PB - 512 MB. Does this make a noticeable difference in performance of the laptop in general? Finally heres a question for experienced power book users, which one (12" PB or 14" iBook) on average has a longer battery life and gets less heated? Finally, I can survive without a laptop for at most 1 more month, do you belive g5 will get released by end of this year or early next year (Jan 2004...)? Should I wait for PowerBook g5 to be released before i purchase, or should I just go ahead with g4? The answers to these questions will greatly help me buy a mac. Happy thanksgiving! Thank you all!
