Hell, isn't that always the question? Until two weeks ago, I had an iBook 500. It was my constant and loyal companion, and I loved it dearly. Oh how I loved it. But then, cruel fate snatched it away from me when my upstairs neighbor's toilet overflowed and dumped six gallons of water onto it. While it was open. And running. Insurance was kind enough to give me a check for the replacement value. In fact, they gave me $300 more than I paid for it, plus money for a lot of other things that were destroyed in my apartment. So, now I have plenty of money, but no laptop. You can see where this is leading. I need to replace my laptop, and I have my eyes on a 15" PowerBook G4. But with all the rumors of a new Aluminum model right around the corner, I'm going crazy. Should I just wait, and wait, and wait, and go without a laptop, and hope for an update soon? Or should I just say "To heck with it!" and trot down to the apple store and buy one this weekend? Help me decide! This insurance money is burning a hole in my pocket.
