    get the dell 20" with the 12" powerbook, or a 15" with the dell 20"

    personally i would get the 12" since it weighs less

    Good advice. I agree. If you got $$ to spend get the Apple ACD, if not go with the Dell LCD.

    Thats what I would do. I wouldn't get the dell, yes it is a lot less $$ but something about the ACD makes the computer look even better.

    Look in the deals/save section of the apple store web page. They have displays refurbished and on sale there.

    I wouldn't pay the current price for the 12" PB -- a soon to be outdated machine.

    I've had the 12", 15", and 17" PB's over the years; the 12" PB just feels claustrophobic: its lack of screen space, overall dim screen quality, bad sound, etc. sure, it's small, but so is the iBook, and you'll save a lot more with the latter.

    Get the 15"PB if you can afford it or hold off until MWSF.
