I decided to wait intill the new version of powerbook comes out. By the it should be clear to what buy- 12" G4 iBook, 12" G4 PB (ver. B), or 12"G4 PB (ver. C). Is long as it gets a 200 Mhz booat, more ram/ Vram, more L2 cache would be great, and MABEY a lighted keyboard. Others ways, probaly the ver B PB. It should be about $1299- 1399. Plus a student discount. But I was wondering, will all this drain the battery faster? How important is battery life to students carring it around all day? Anything else that you hear apple might update for the PB? -I'm talking 12" here.
