    I am a new user here and would like some advice. By may 28th i will have enough funds to buy a 12inch powerbook dvd-r/rw and airport extreme (approx. $2000) Should i buy it or not? I would like to play high tech games on it. Right now i have an late 2001 ibook. :confused:

    I recently saw a benchmark that showed a couple areas where the 800 mhz ibook out performed the 866 mhz albook... i think it was at or something like that... So, it might be worth your while to wait until they upgrade the ibook and save yourself a few dollars..

    My advice to you would be don't worry about what your going to buy until you've got the money.

    When May 28th rolls around, and you've got the money, that would be the time to evaluate your purchase. A lot could change in a months time (but, I doubt anything will).

    Most people tend to believe that all of Apple's laptops will be update sometime in the summer. If I were you, I'd save up more cash and wait until the PowerBook's are updated.
