I have decided to upgrade this old laptop (bought used on ebay) and switch over to an Apple computer. This will be my first time purchasing an Apple and here is basically what I will be using it for: -Internet, email -word processing; I'm a freelance writer and a student so I will be using it for my writing and schoolwork -light graphic design and photo editing -making cds -watching dvds Other notes: -portability is key. (Tired of lugging around a heavy laptop.) -on a budget of 1500 and less. Have no problem considering a used or refurb. -I will probably keep this new laptop for a few years(3+) before upgrading. I have been reading several of the threads here and have found a lot of great info. I think I am leaning more towards a 14" iBook but welcome any additional advice. I saw these deals on refurbs at the Apple store: -$999 - Refurbished iBook G4 1.33GHz 256MB 60GB SuperDrive AP Extreme Card/ E/ 56K/ 14-inch TFT -$1,049 - Refurbished iBook 14-inch 1.42GHz SuperDrive 512MB memory (DDR333 SDRAM) 60GB Ultra ATA hard drive ATI Mobility Radeon 9550 (32MB DDR video memory) Built-in AirPort Extreme Built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR Scrolling Trackpad Sudden Motion Sensor Tips, advice?? Thanks!
