As my re-initiation back into the world of the Apple computer I am going to be buying the 12" G4 ibook, that decision has been made (much deliboration and scrimping/money juggling, heh).. however I'm having trouble deciding which extras will be most important since my budget is somewhat limited. I'm getting the bluetooth since you only have one chance to make it internal and the AirPort Extreme since school is wireless, but do you think that upgrading ram or hard drive is more important? The ram I can always upgrade later.. but is a larger hard drive really necessary since there's a CD burner? (except maybe when it comes to resale value? I'm not even sure about that) - I have no experience buying a lap top or a mac even, the last mac my family purchased brand new was back in 1992 I think (after that my dad used to get them from work until he retired or we'd get used ones from the school my mum worked at for $100 or so and those just came as is no choice about it) I'm also having trouble deciding whether I should ditch upgrading either of those and going for AppleCare instead. I could always ditch my pride and ask my parents for a loan, but I'm trying to avoid doing that. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
