Well, first a little background. I used to be a pure PC person. Last year I started getting into macs, and in March I took the plunge and bought a refurb PowerMac G5 single 1.8. I dropped an extra gig of RAM in and I was set. I just love the machine, and love OS X. I have never had problems with Windows at all (no crashing, etc) but OS X is just more elegant, and more fun to use. I basically only use my PC for gaming now. Now to the question at hand. Laptops. I currently have a very nice PC laptop (DELL Latitude D600). It has a 1.6 Ghz Pentium-M (Centrino) processor, Radeon 9000, 512 RAM, 40 gig hard drive, CD-R/DVD combo drive, 14" 1400x1050 screen. It is quite speedy, and serves me well, but I'm feeling the urge for a mac laptop. Also, while mine is light, I'm thinking I might like a 12" machine. So I was thinking of a 12" ibook - it seems to be a much better price than the powerbook for not much less of a computer. My question is, will I be happy with the speed of an ibook? Part of me think it is a big step down performance wise from the laptop I currently have. Any thoughts on this? PS: I will be waiting for the upcoming PB release to do anything - for now the PB 12" seems like a waste of money over the iBook, but that may change depending on what apple puts out.
