    Sorry...this is sort of a repeat of another of today's threads, but with a different emphasis: Having decided on the 14 inch iBook, how many of you are still happy/at peace with your decision? How many of you wish you had gone the 12 inch PB route? Your answers will help me out of my present conundrum...
    THANKS!

    I don't have a 14 inch iBook but if I got an iBook that would be the one I'd get. The only problem with the iBook line is their crippled graphics card...

    I dont think the 9200 is crippled....The 12" PB's card is crippled,I would take the 32MB Radeon over the 64MB nVidiot any day.

    Can you elaborate on that? I've heard something about this...but what is it all about exactly?

    I had a 14" iBook G4 (Radeon 9200,933MHz,640MB DDR) and my Mom has the 64MB nVidia 5200 Ultra in her PC(2.80GHz,768MB DDR) ,I tested Unreal Tournament 2004 and it ran much smoother on the iBook. I have always preferred ATI cards.

    I have nothing to prove to anyone and no reason to lie.

    Why does it seem to be all 14" iBook vs 12" PowerBook in here?

    12" iBook is the best. :)

    I agree,I would have bought the 12" 1GHz iBook over the PowerBook if I would have waited 2 days!
