Hey Y'all, With an update coming soon, I am having the itch to get a new computer. I am thinking about purchasing one of the books instead of a desktop, because of the major factor of travel. Here is how my life looks like on a regular basis: -Walk to subway -Clases Mon-Fri (use laptop in class at least once a week to replace a 1000page reference book literally) -Come back home -Regular computing needs (iPhoto, Email, Internet surfing, Once a month video editing, AIM) -Business Travel approx. once every two months. Location: usually 200 miles away from my home. Now I know many people here would suggest the ibook b/c its sturdier and more of a value. But I must say the ability to native support external higher resolution displays is important to me (yes I know there is a hack for this). And yes the design itself is a selling point for me. :-D So the two questions are Why should I pick the pb over the ib with my needs? Would I be able to make the book last up to 3 years with my level of activities? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
