(Long time lurker soon to be switcher). I was all set to go with a 14" ibook and my wife very unexpectedly greenlighted spending the money for a 15" powerbook. (I'd go with the 1Gz non airport extreme built-in / no superdrive version-- I'm not a power user; but I'm used to a fairly snappy machine). I have a Linksys WRT54G router that a peecee notebook can pick up in every room of my house. I was going to order the 15" and an airport extreme card-- then I read the apple message boards and there are a lot of complaints about 15" wifi reception being terrible-- MUCH worse than ibook-- some say even as bad as the Ti Powerbook. Some people appear to be using the PC card slot for a wifi card (which I guess would not be able to use the builtin antenna) in order to get reception. I have eagerly read every ibook v. powerbook thread here for 6 months and I dont recall anyone griping about the AL powerbook reception-- please let me know if you have 15" AL Powerbook reception trouble-- should I just get an ibook instead?
