Now I know a million people probably did this, but I'm doing it anyway for myself..because I can't find those other threads, so I apologize I'm a Mac "wannabe", I'm a huge fan, know about all the products, but to this date, have not owned any of the mac products (I got a few nifty mac information pamphlets tho ). This should all change in the incoming weeks as I, SHOBAI, PLAN TO PURCHASE A POWERBOOK! BWAHAHAH! So, I'm going into New York University as a communications major ,my first year, and plan to do some graphic work and the other student basics (typing, internet, presenations). I got it locked down between the 12" al powerbook or the 15" ti powerbook...but i'm slamming my head against a can of spam trying to figure out which one to get. I need it to be portable, moderately powerful, and able to serve me faithfully for a few if not all 4 years of college. Can you guys (and I love you guys, you're all so damned nice on these forums) give me a pro's and con's comparison list...and possibly your reccomendation on what should be my FIRST MAC PURCHASE EVEEEEEEEEEEER!!? Thanks!!
