I'm in charge of a small IT development team : 2 analysts (myself included) and 2 interns. We develop web application using an Oracle (for now) DB. This week, my boss gave me the go ahead to upgrade our workstations and buy 2 laptops. I'm currently using my trusted G3 iBook 800MHz (my first mac!), for light PERL, PL/SQL and Java development, mail, office X and Safari/IE/Firefox testing. My main "workstation" is a AthlonXP 2400+ running WinXP and SuSE in dual-boot. My colleague is currently using a P4 2GHz running WinXP and SuSE in dual-boot, an old G3 B&W for testing and no laptop. We've already chosen our new workstation (Sun Java Workstation Opteron 1.8GHz running linux). Our "old" PC will now be use for Windows testing. We've chosen a Dell Latitude D600 PentiumM 1.8GHz and a Mac Mini G4 1.25GHz for my colleague. For me, I was thinking about a PowerBook G4 1.33GHz 15inch with 1GB RAM (or a new 12inch G4 1.5GHz 5400rpm if they are release and in-stock tuesday) . BUT, I'm beginning to question my choice: the Dell is cheaper, has greater resolution and the Pentium M is faster than the G4. Should I buy a Dell with a Mac Mini or stick to the PowerBook G4?
