Ok, I've been a loyal mac user and specifically Powerbook user for awhile. I started with the Powerbook G4, 500 (original tiBook) and its long passed its applecare warranty plan. Plus, I plan on getting into FCP so i'd like a faster computer for that anyway. The limit: $2500 (excluding tax) The Ideas: A) MWSF, January 10th purchase the most up to date Powerbook 15" @$2500 B) iMac G5 17", 1.8GHz G5+ 14" ibook, 1.33GHz G4 1. Wait until January 10th (keynote+expo) to buy these II. Buy them now, both at mid product life. I'm in college, so I get the educational discount. I'm spending $2500 at Apple on a computer, so don't tell me to go to Hawaii or buy a typewriter... Suggestions welcome. Keep in mind i'd like good performance, and we don't know what the Powerbook will be like in 'O5. We can, however, guess that its either a G4 or a G5 and it is not likely that they will be over 2.0GHz, and more likely they will be the same speed as the iMac. What are your thoughts?
