I'm a high school sophomore looking for a fairly portable laptop. My parents have gotten weird about paying for one until college. Next year, I'll be entering my school's International Baccalaureate program in which I will need the portability and presence of a laptop to get work done. I liked the Powerbook G4 12" for awhile and that was almost purchased but then my dad nixed it because he heard there would be a new laptop soon. This was the MBP. It is now about three months later and I'm still fairly impatient. I considered the iBook G4 12" as well but ultimately decided that I wanted a larger hard drive. My dad decided he didn't want to pay for anything I wouldn't be able to use during college. (This is anything prohibitively expensive, mind you. Any PBs or iBooks in the 12" size with at least a 1.33Ghz processor under $600ish would still be pretty good.) I figured that since the intelbooks look pretty "computer of the future" to me that an intelwhatever laptop now + an IntelMini if I need the extra computing power in college (I already have a nice monitor/keyboard/printer/whatnot so that wouldn't be an issue) would seem like a pretty reasonable thing. I'm assuming that a) the intels should be good for quite a few years and b) that Apple will be as nice when the laptop screws up as they were with my succession of iPods. With my luck, I figure I'll break the thing enough by the end of four years of service that I'll eventually get a new one and restart the warranty/applecare. Does anyone have any idea when the MBP 12" or a comparable size is coming out? I am awful at waiting for things, especially when the apple store is nearby. Thanks!
