    ive got the rev c 15inch superdrive

    should i sell it and get a 20 inch iMac

    im not using the portability as much as i thought i would and i could get as much for it as the new i mac would cost (uk prices)

    what should i do.... i would like the bigger screen as i do some photoshop work and also a fair bit of fcp and the powerbook handles this well.. im thinking it might be a good move with the powerbook g5 in the next 6month-year

    If you're not using the portability of your PB, then I'd sell it and get the 20" iMac. It will be much faster (HDD speed, G5, memory speed) and have a far better screen (duh!).
