    I'm looking into getting a smallllll notebook for travel and such.

    I think the 12" powerbook would be just sweeeet, but, i just noticed that they are no longer in the refurb store!!?!?

    Where can I get one of these bad boys besides ebay?!

    Thanks

    (if there are any other options let me know, i dont really want a macbook, because they will get updated in the not so distant future)

    Try Amazon, or online/store retailers.

    Not an actual Apple Store, a reseller.

    Whats wrong with the MacBook?

    Any money you spend on a new PowerBook is basically dead money.

    The processor used in them will only be supported for maybe another 2, 3 years, at most.

    The newer MacBook has the latest processor, Bluetooth and APX (built in as standard), widescreen glossy display, 2 finger scrolling on the trackpad, Front Row with a remote, and a built-in iSight.

    Its the newest model from Apple and is whats supported now and in the future as its on the Intel architecture, and not PPC.

    You can pick one up for under $1000 on eBay.
