    I'm was looking at buying an iBook this month, but have since read of the new MacBook due to go on sale in 30-60 days time. I've got a few questions if any of you would be kind enough to answer them :)

    Will the MacBook be similarly priced to the 12" iBook? Will the iBook disappear from stores after the release of the MacBook, or will there be a reduction in price?

    I'm curious as I don't need something with the power of the MacBook, and i'm in desperate need of a new laptop as my PC is dying a slow and painful death, and I can really only afford the 12" iBook :(

    Thanks!

    1) The MacBook is likely to cost the same as the current iBooks
    2) When replaced third-party retailers are highly likely to still have iBooks in stock for a while.

    apple is going to continue selling the 12" iBook for a while after the release of the MacBook and probably for a lower price. I would wait until they're released just to see a comparison and then make your choice. I'm kind of in the same boat but I dont need one til Aug. I dont NEED the power of the MacBook.....but I sure would like it :p
