Hi. I'm interested in getting a notebook for surfing, emailing, and doing some school work such as report writing, presentations, etc. I find the iBook much more affordable. The PowerBook is more costly compared to Wintel notebooks (moreover some of my more serious school work is not available on the Mac platform). Therefore, I've almost decided on getting the next iBook. But I'm also worried that the next iBook will remain as G3 and that it will not come out before November. Can you guys give me some advice on this? Thanks.
