I've been planning on replacing my IBM T30 to iBook 12", powerbook 15" or Sony Vaio S series since graduating from college(about 5-6 months now). Hence I've been reading posts on this thread almost everyday now, but like most anticipated "wanna-be" switchers couldn't make up my mind simply because of the IBM->Intel change next year. Should I just wait until next year, get an iBook for now then sell it and get the "new" powerbook, get a powerbook and settle with it for a few years, or just go with a Vaio? Here's what I would do on a Mac laptop: 1.web programming(Java, PHP, Perl, HTML, XML, eclipse, etc.) 2.some photo/graphics editing 3.very little video/audio editing 4.internet I would appreciate any advice, like you guys have been helping out others in this forum. Thanks in advance.
