    I think hes talking about a refurbed model when new models come out. Those are discounted seeing that they are the last revision,

    I'd go for the iMac first. It is likely that the laptops will go Intel before the iMac, so you're better off waiting for the new iBook to appear sometime next year.

    Well I debated the same thing and went with the iBook because I need the portability. I will by an iMac maybe next year after I have money and when the intels come out.

    Get iMac first, then iBook, unless you really NEED portability.
