Well, like 99% of the mac community, I'm in the market for a laptop. I started college this year and debated buying one of the recently revised powerbooks because of their upgraded display density. Right now, I'm using my 2 year old home-built PC. I built the PC as a holdover until I could get a mac, and intend on putting linux on it when I do purchase a mac. The upcoming merom powerbooks seem to be what I'm looking for, but I was wondering about how possible yonah powerbooks would compare. I'd really like an HD display, and a video card capable of playing back 1080p h.264. What's my best bet? Buy a yonah powerbook (assuming they are released during this school year) or wait until late fall of '06 for a merom powerbook? Also, I'm expecting to get through college on this laptop, and my only processor intensive uses would be recording/music production and viewing video, with occasional editing.
