Because otherwise I'd be a bit upset right now. 2 months of frustration without a computer (when I really needed one) for little more than a ripple effect. The value of BT and 512MB ram as standard is negated by the fact that the new iBook cost $100 more than the old one in Switzerland (bastards). The 6% faster processor isn't noticeable and the faster 9550, is seriously crippled since it only has 32MB. I wonder what Apple was thinking when they put the 9550 in there and left the RAM at 32MB. My guess is that the iBook is getting another update before going Intel, and will then get 64MB VRAM, with the PB 12" going R9700 before that. BTW, does anyone know if the new iBook has a 166MHz buss? If so, that would make the 12" PB virtually obsolete, since the ONLY advantage it has left is the 64MB VRAM. Or is the memory run asynchronously to the bus? If so, the performance benefit is virtually zero.
