hi guys. come september, i shall be starting a gap year here in the uk, witht eh intention of going to university next year. i need a new machine which is capable of seeing me thoruogh everyday tasks, such as emailing, messaging, music and photo storage some light editing and playing around with ilife, etc. i think the ibook will be perfect for this, because it enables me to take my stuff away with me, is stylish, and i can also plug in keyboards and mice and whatnot when using it at home. i dont really have the budget for a powerbook, sexy as they are, because im only a pov student! my current ibook has been sold, as i tried to repair it to no avail (a guy offered to buy it form me because he is a technical support guy and wanted to have a go...sold it to him for about £600 (not bad)). generally getting a feel of how people who use their ibooks in this way feel about their machines. any feedback welcome. tastic. so a new one is in the horizon.
