I've been working with an ibook G4/powermac G5 set up, but I just sold the powermac (long story, but I'd had enough of that particular machine). So, having gotten a nice chunk of change for the PM, it's time to decide what to do. I could get: 1) A new desktop to use with my 20" ACD, specifically a used powermac G5/dual G4/mac mini. 2) An iMac G5, and sell the cinema display. 3) A powerbook, and sell my ibook. The advantage here is that the ibook can't connect to my display but a powerbook could. Yeah, I can span the ibook screen with the hack, but to connect to a DVI only monitor will require a ~$400 adapter -- no thanks! (I wish the 12" powerbook had gotten a graphics card update, 512 RAM built in, and a new screen...) 4) Nothing. Just use my ibook and box up the ACD for now, and see what the future brings. I'm a law student, and don't *need* anything other than the ibook right now, but it's so much nicer to work on a bigger screen, and to have something faster than an ibook as a main computer. There's not necessarily a rush to buy anything, but nor is there a reason to wait (i.e. intel is not a big deal to me).
