Well, I was set on an iBook but I'm unsure if it'll be able to run apps like photoshop, dreamweaver, Qrk, Illustrator....I'm in school for Graphics Design and I'm going to be using these apps frequently. Now I'm gonna go Apple for sure, what I need to know is do I have to go PowerBook? Can an iBook runs these apps if I max out the RAM? Or do I have to bite the bullet and spend more cash for the PowerBook. A 12" PowerBook is what I really want, but maxing out the RAM, SuperDrive, Airport Extreme, Applecare, and an Airport Station it adds up. What do you think I should do? BTW how far off are the PB updates? Soon? Thanks for your time.
