    Guys i got a dilema which i need help one

    I want a replacement for my 1.9ghz compaq :eek: (im so embaressed)

    i dont really need portability but it would be nice, i just like sittin on my couch or in bed with my laptop :) .

    but maybe the iMac 17' is a better fit for me then the powerbook 12' superdrive.

    Give me you thoguht people.

    I'd go with the 17'' iMac. A bigger screen is always better!

    for the same price, you get basically the same computer, except:

    12" screen and portability or 17" screen.

    i'd personally go with 12" and add an external monitor if you decide to want more desktop space. bigger screen is definitely nicer... but you can't use the screen unless you can take it with you! ;)

    (i thought you were deciding between iBook and PB... now considering iMac too? gee... just pick one. :rolleyes: :D )
