Last thursday my powerbook was stolen from me. Therefore i am in the market for a new computer. (the insurance is paying for it) Im having a hard time deciding between getting a powerbook again, or getting a 20 inch imac. This is the second time that this powerbook was stolen, and i really dont want to have another on stolen from me again. Next year i am going off to college, and my parents are insiting that i buy a laptop. So, my big worry is, do you highly reccomend having a laptop in college, or could i survive with an imac in my dorm? and lastly should i wait for a miracle in jan, or should I buy now?
