    I'm thinking for $200 more you get a MacBook but I'm sure you had your reasons.

    yes i wanted a macbook, but if i was going to get one i wanted the 1299 model with the dvd burner. the powerbook has a superdrive so i was happy with that. ive also read about all the problems they have with them right now. so for the 450 extra i can't see the point in getting it for what ill be using it for.

    And the 2 years of Applecare is worth a few quid.

    It sounds like a good deal. If it's enough computer for you, you made a good choice.

    Enjoy it.

    It's nice, its very similar to the powerbook I'm using right now, same processor (speed), its running Tiger, its 15" and it has a 9700 Radeon, 512mb ram too.

    Its very fast in Tiger and I like this machine a lot so I'm sure you'll like yours as well too.
