Okay, I want to buy an apple laptop, I know that much, but I'm at a loss for what I actually need as opposed to what would be really cool. I'm going to approach this by pointing out what I think I need/want the laptop for and what my knowledge level is: 1) I'm a college sudent, so simple word processing obviously 2) I'm a gamer, specifically I'd like to play World of Warcraft on the laptop when I'm away from my apartment, its teh first game of its type that I've played and I like it way to much) 3) I'm a Web Designer who uses Macromedia products to conceptualize designs and editpad to actually code. I'm ruling out a 17" powerbook for cost and portability reasons, and I'm a little bit sceptical about the 12" ibook and powerbook models becuase I think the screen might be too small for games/design. I can easily gauge how much power I need to put into a PC, and usually buy whatever the fastest parts are that I can afford. With a mac however I'm a little bit unsure, so I'm wondering where is the breaking point that says "buy a powerbook"? And additionally I really don't like how secrative apple is about their product releases, so should I think about holding out until right after a new model/speedbump is released?
