I have $1800 to spend on my first Mac. I need to know what you would have, a Dual 1.25 GHZ PowerMac G4 or a 12" PowerBook (Rev B). PowerBook: 768 MB RAM 60 GB Hard Drive PowerMac: 1.256 GB RAM 80 GB Hard Drive I am buying memory from Crucial for the machine, as it is cheaper. I'm also buying through a teacher for the EDU discount. I am going to Florida for Xmas and would like to take it with me, so the PowerBook is nice in that field. The PowerMac would probably last longer performance wise, right? I could take the PowerMac with me, yet it ways 42 pounds. Saturday is a benefit fish fry for a friend who is 13 with cancer, and I came up with a good idea of having him use a webcam at his house and have my digital video cam at the fish fry, where people can talk to him and see him through the computer. A small computer would be nice there, too. But I would mostly use the computer at home, so I would like having something I wouldn't have to chunk because it's too slow after a few years. I want it to run the latest programs with out being bogged down. So, performance vs. portability is the question. Thanks for taking time to read this. Please respond.
