I'm about to get a powerbook for school (college) and I just wanted to make sure i'm making the right choice. I'm stuck between the more expensive more stable 15" 1.67ghz powerbook (lots of ram) verses a cheaper, less stable dell (or somthing of the like). I will be using the laptop mostly for school (wordprocessing, powerpoint) and it will be replacing my desktop (which is staying home with my mom). I plan to use Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Dreamweaver, some DVD authoring apps, surf the web, chat and check email. I just want to make sure this computer will be up to those tasks and will last a few years (I guess until the intel apples come out and are bugfree-ish). Oh and i'm tired of Windows.
