I read many posts on various iBook and PB and digested suggestions/reviews from the fellow forum members. But, I cannot still make a decision. I travel quite often (a few nights per trip and I am always on the road as I am in sales). I have two PBs at home (15"). Ti is a little fragile so I don't want to take it outside. My Al 15" PB is a little big and so nice and I don't want to riks denting or scratching it while it may be less convenience to carrying it along on the road. So, 12" size is good option for me (this, I know). The 12" iBook is good value (built in airport express card, 30 GB, 32MB VRAM, decent screen res for a 12", slot loading DVD/CD RW drive, and sturdy construction. But, at the same time, I would like to keep my next laptop for a while and 12" PB is more technologically advanced than iBook. 80 GB, faster chip, Super Drive, bluetooth, and on and on. But, it is a lilttle frigile compared to iBook, in terms of the casing (it is easy to dent, accoridng to other forum members). I am planning the proposal, presentation slids, market research by checking web, work processing, spread sheet, and etc. Possibly in the future some type of video editining or graphics work (not now, but in the future). I appreciate any feedback/suggestions from other members who has either or both 12" iBook and 12" PB.
