Okay, so I've decided that I really want a G5 PB when they come out - if that day ever comes. I was originally going to buy a G4 PB, but the prospect of having a 64-bit compatible OS without a computer to run it to its full capacity, especially when I just payed close to $3K on it, makes me want to wait. That being said, I can't really make due with the Dull laptop I have now (P3 800) and so I have to make a decision about what I can do to make sure that I have a decent laptop without spending too much money, and one that I would be able to sell in a year or so and not take too much of a hit on resale value when I sell it to to partially pay for a new G5 PB (difficult scenario, I know ). I am mainly looking at usability for everyday tasks because I am going to law school and will need to do lots of wordprocessing, presentations and the like. So my question is this, would you recommend a 14" iBook to fit the bill or a 12" PB? Both would be the sd-less models, since I have a MDD Dual 1.25 at home with a sd. Also, both would have AE, but the iBook would probably not have bluetooth, although I don't really have any use for that anyway, other than possibly getting a wireless keyboard and mouse. I am concerned that the PB screen size will be too small for multi-tasking (like if I wanted to check e-mail during class or surf the web or anything like that while I was taking notes). However, I am slightly turned off by the iBook's white plastic and slightly worse screen quality (I think... correct me if I'm wrong here). All-in-all I don't think the processor speeds would be noticeably different, since I will mainly use them both to do everyday-type tasks and not hardcore gaming or anything like that (that's why I got an Xbox). I think I am leaning towards the iBook because it has a larger screen, better battery life, and a tougher skin, but I am really not sure about the decision. Also, I am a pretty big guy, and I am wondering what I would look like with a 12" computer sitting in front of me! Anyway, thanks in advance for the advice.
