I know, everyone probably hates these questions, but it's time for me to make the purchase. (Hoping for this weekend at least) As my current desktop is suiting my needs, the need for a laptop, mobility is next. I'm down down to the 14.1" Ibook, or the 12" Powerbook. Configured the way I want, pricing is about 100 more on the Powerbook. (Airport, 640MB Ram etc. etc.) I"m really stumped on this as I like the screen size on the Ibook a bit more, but the extra power on the Powerbook is nice as well. To cut it short, the machines primary function will be mobile photoshop work, web surfing, e-mail and the ability to be easily carted around which I'm guessing either of these will do. From experience, are either one of these machines going to be more up to the tasks I'm looking for, or more durable for that matter? The 100 dollars is hardly an issue of course, it's more a matter of which one will be more pleasureable to work with. Also, is the speed difference between the two machines going to be that drastic? Thanks again, this site has been very helpful in my different quests so far!
