I'm considering getting a Apple laptop before the end of the year is over. I plan to use it for internet, school work, iTunes, LIGHT photo editing, and multi-track recording with GarageBand. I'm thinking of possibly getting a PB12" 1.5GHz with it's specs maxed out. However, I have a few questions and need some advice. I plan to use this machine for 1-3 years. Depending on if a smaller size MBP comes out(I'm still hoping), or the MB's get something that I really want. I was planning on originally getting a MB(the middle model), but I thought that since I wasn't keeping it for so long why spend so much on it. A PowerBook would be significantly cheaper for sure. I like the PB's design much better than the MacBook's. It seems more sturdy and whatnot to me. I also like the small, compact design of the PB. My questions are: -Would the model PowerBook I'm looking at be able to handle the things I wish to do at ease? -If Leopard entices me enough, will it be able to run well on the PowerBook? -With the time I plan on using the laptop, would I be better off grinning and bearing and just get a MacBook, or should I stick with the PowerBook? I really don't want to invest much into this laptop I'm getting. -Are the PPC G4 processors okay? This may sound weird, but it's just another one of my weird reasons of wanting to get a PB. I really like the G4 processors, I dunno why but I just like them. It feels more authentic to have PPC in a Mac computer to me than it does having Intel Inside. And there's just something about hearing of Intel Integrated Graphics in a Mac that makes my stomach churn. Any opinions are much appreciated! Thanks a lot.
