Just wanted to say thank you to everyone on the boards who answered my questions and other users' questions that helped me out in making my decision. I had my eye on the PowerBook from the onset and I just sent in the order a few minutes ago. Went with the 120GB HDD and 512MB RAM w/ AppleCare. I'll be ordering another 512MB stick from Crucial, a sleeve and other accessories. Went into the Apple Store this afternoon to choose between the 15" and 17" and the 15" just seemed to fit the bill. I'll only be doing light photo editing and general tasks on it, so I think the 1GB should do just fine for me. I was a bit hesitant putting the order in considering I never fully discussed it with my parents. They said go ahead and get whatever I wanted anyway. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Thanks again so much to everyone. Enjoyed the forums thus far. I'm sure I'll be around asking lots of questions soon.
