So i got my powerbook a month ago, and i went for the powerbook over the ibook for these reasons: 1. able to screen span (not mirror) w.o. hack 2. More Vram 3. Better quality now i think i am greatly mistaken in the quality.. 1. You know that part right above the latch, where the alluminum connects to the grey lining (well the whole right side of the latch is not connected or stuck to that grey lining while the left side is...) 2. Battery is nowhere near flush with the powerbook on the back. these two things may seem small or insignificant, but at the time i thought this was worth the extra 200-300 bux.. the quality is deffinetly not as nice as the looks..
