I'm about ready to purchase my first Mac (well, like 13 years after my parents bought an Apple //c) and I'm stuck. I'm willing to spend about $1800 or so. About the only things I'll be doing with this computer is general internet use and web site maintence, email, writing papers for school, playing The Sims (my wife likes that game), maybe some small scale music production down the road (using Reason MAYBE)... So yea, I'm not some power user by any means. My main intrest is maintaining my website, checking my email from the porch, and playing The Sims on the couch. So. Should I get a nicely loaded iBook with the 14" screen. OR A base model of the new 12" PowerBook. I couldn't really afford to modify it from the get go as far as RAM and HD space. Your opinions greatly appreciated. Thanks.
