Hey I posted several months ago and was close to buying an iMac, unfortunatly due to an unforseen emergency I could no longer afford one. I will now be able to afford a new computer again in about a week. I am now having a huge debate again. The problem being the Powerbooks are now again... well powerful. I am student in my third year of University in a Soft Eng Prog and have been working on a 15" Toshiba Tecra S1 Laptop for three years. I would like to get a Mac but would like to know how transportable the 17" IMac is? I saw carrying bags for it. With my current Laptop I rarely use it outside the room. The only time I use it outside the room would be on the plane home. That said I also have to move usually every 4 months (sometimes great distances, e.g. from one side of the country to the other for co-op). So would it be worth it to get the IMac and use my other Laptop whenever I rarely need it for entertainment on long trips? Is the IMac also small enough to be taken as carryon? I would never have it stored under a plane. Thanks for any help Edit: Oh ya and one of the other issues is price. The Powerbook is a lot more $ even with a student discount. So I might wieght till around April, the rumoured time of the iBook I think. Hopefully it will be able to run WoW.
