    I'm not whipping out my wallet yet but I am torn between 2 computers.

    The new PB 12-inch with the SD and one of the two SD iMacs, they both have DVD burning features, I think the PB is 67Mhz faster and I think the iMac has a better graphics card, also the iMac HD storage is larger and the PB is AirPort Extreme ready.

    But I need someones more educated opinion.

    Which one is better?

    First, wait until new iMacs are released (that will probably be on 25th january) and then decide.

    This Powerbook is a lot more faster then iMac.
    As for games, it is sure Powerbook would always outperform any of iMacs.

    well the PB is not that much faster than the iMac. Is this going to be your sole computer? If so you have to think about a few things like, the HD space (but of course you can get an external HD, but again more money,) and if your going to be doing any sort of work with photos or video will the 12" be large enough for you? I see the 12" as an amazing machine for the road, but not as a desktop replacement, the other PB's though like the new 17" are a different story altogether though.....

    like said above, it's best to wait for what apple has in store for the new imacs

    they are certainly due for an upgrade soon
