Is the PB 17" worth spending $2800.00 on? or should i just go G5?
it is if you need portability. no if you just want raw power.
quite a subjective question. ask yourself.
Re: Pb 17"
In a word.. Yes.
When I'm sitting in a hotel 4000miles from home and I'm working on Flash MX, iChatting and listening to iTunes.. I am perfectly content. The 17" is a complete solution.. you buy it and you don't need a desktop. You buy a g5, you'll still need a laptop.
Though, I'm still itching for a secondary display for when I'm at home and the 17" screen doesn't quite cut it.
Re: Re: Pb 17"
I'll second that. The G5 sounds nice and all, but as I'm sitting here on my 17 inch alubook, I have a hard time imagining what else I could want.
Of course, a year or two from now when G5s are in laptops and blazing away at 2+ GHz, I may be singing a different tune ;-).
where are you getting it for that price? Dev discount?
and btw - yes, its worth it!
my dads friend sells them on ebay, brandnew, and he's going to sell me one for 2800.00
for sure! that's a great price!
well worth it!
