I have been really dying to get an Apple laptop, especially a PowerBook, but right now the price is a little steep for me, so I was considering a iBook instead. I am an avid Final Cut Pro user, and even though I know that the system requirements on FCP4 state that it needs at least a G4 500mhz processesor, has anyone been able to still get it to run on their iBook. I ask this because I have read many debates that the G3 and the G4 are really not that much different, so would a 900mhz G3 be pretty close to a 500mhz G4? I know I probably could on the iBook downgrade to FCP 2 or 3, but have read some problems on import those projects into FCP4. I also was curious if anyone has upgraded to a superdrive for their iBook, from that one company, and how would you rate its performance with iDVD, DVDSPro? Right now I just feel since I really want a laptop, just go with the iBook and save the big bucks for when G5s hit the powerbooks. So should I shell out the money and buy and the iBook, or will I just be frustrated cause of the problems of the demanding problems. Advice is greatly appreciated.
