    Hey, so I broke my old laptop and a new one has been sent to me from the insurance company but I haven't opened it yet. What I was wondering however, is if I'd be better of selling the laptop on ebay for a little under apple's price and buying a Mac mini and a PC (I'd have enough left to finish building the one I've wanted for gaming)...

    This is the iBook spec -

    1.33GHz PowerPC G4
    512K L2 cache (at 1.33GHz)
    14-inch TFT Display
    1024x768 resolution
    256MB DDR266 memory
    60GB Ultra ATA drive
    DVD/CD-RW drive
    ATI Mobility Radeon 9200
    32MB video memory
    AirPort Extreme built-in

    Would a mac mini be that big a performance difference? I'd probably go for the higher spec one... I do enjoy having a laptop and being able to take it places but I'm thinking that portability might be worth sacrificing to be able to get the two computers I've wanted...

    Please help!


    Edit - I might consider an iMac aswell and not get the PC yet, this could be my best option... thoughts?
