I've been reading these forums for the last week or so and wanted to ask an opinion. Right now I have a recent IBM that I'm selling to purchase a Powerbook (should have done it in the first place but was scared about engineering/education software incompatilibities). Once I sell the IBM (hopefullin the next week) I'll be in the market to purchase a Powerbook. I want the 15" but I keep reading about these Dual Core rumors. Will the Dual Core G4's go into the 12 - 17" Powerbooks or maybe just the 17" because of size and cooling? My main dilemma is that the 1.67GHz Powerbook is only $1899 through my school instead of $2299 through the Apple Store or the $2099 it is through normal education discounts. I'm wondering if the Dual Cores will be maybe the same price and worth the wait, or if maybe when they release the one I want will drop further. I do occasional Photoshop/InDesign/Illustrator work and will probably end up using SolidWorks through VirtualPC a few times out of neccessity so the extra power would be nice, but I've used the 15" now and they're MUCH faster than I expected after reading all the Pentium-M vs. G4 debates. I think I'm leaning towards just buying the 1.67 when I sell the IBM and just dealing with it, but I'd hate to have thought that I could have purchased maybe the last interm update before the Intel Powerbook (not concerned with waiting for that one). Thanks for the help and the opinions.
