    you could return it to apple and get a full refund (minus the restocking fee) You would probably end up getting the same if not maybe more than you would if you sold it. And its much less hassle to return it than sell it. i think apple gives you 10 days to return?!

    keep it. it'll be great with your 17" external. Trust me, I use a rev. B 12" with an external. Best of both worlds.

    Well if you don't travel around a lot theres not much point in your having one. I've had my powerbook for a while now and god... i just can't explain how happy i am to own one. In saying that you could take Kerbs advice and get all the "desktopy" extras.

    Try picking up an iCurve. I use my 17" PowerBook as a desktop on one of these and it works great with a stand-alone keyboard and mouse. Plus I can still easily take it with me when I'm not at home of course unlike an iMac.

    Personally I'd wait until seeing what the new iMac's like, or whether it gets released in September at all, before selling the perfectly good new computer I already have, but perhaps that's just me.
