    After months of anticipation, and confusion between a powermac and powerbook, i finnaly decided to order myself a powerbook. I headed over to the nearest apple center in zurich, and after long hesitation, i surprisingly decided the 15 inch was more suit for my needs. But i did LOVE the screen on the 17 inch, but it is just too bulky, doesnt feel like a laptop. I am going to order the powerbook with my brothers educational discount in america, and i will pick it up when i go there on vacation in a month. Ive decided to go with the upgraded vram to 128, and the 100 gig hard drive. I chose to get 1 gig of ram (2X512) so i could upgrade to 1.5 later on when i have more money, as well as get a 20 inch apple display and make this laptop my desktop. I wanted to thank you all on the board for all the help your posts have made over the past 6 months in making my desicion. Now all i have to do is wait... 30 more days :( but il be sure to post pics when i get this bad boy.. :D

    Congratulations - a great system, and I hope the wait will not be too hard to bear. It will be worth it though.

    just switched this past weekend to a 12" PB.

    Anyone who wants a great, tiny laptop should look seriously at the 12" PB. Does everything i need with no bulk and 4+ hour battery life!

    Amen!

    Wow :) I've ordered a similar system (only 80GB HD, only 512 Ram) and its being delivered today!

    The wait is horrendous, but it makes it all the more better when it does arrive! Congrats on the switch, I decided to fully switch with my Powerbook and I've no doubt its absolutely the right idea.

    Congratulations and welcome!

    Having switched a little over two years ago, all I can say is - you won't be dissapointed!
