I apologize that some of this is a rehashing of topics asked repeatedly over the years here at MR, but I frankly did not feel like searching through a large number of threads for the information I would like, as I do not remember a specific thread completely pertinent to my question(s). In any case, sorry. Now, last week my much-loved and venerable Pismo lost it's screen, and the cost of replacement has pushed me to purchase a new laptop instead. I only wish to spend around $1000-1300 max on this purchase, as I will be upgrading my PM later this year. I have looked at the new iBooks, and find them to be quite compelling machines, but I would really like the extra screen real-estate of a PB. Looking around, I have found used TiBook 15" @ 800mhz and 1ghz w/in my price range. They both come standard with airport (the original) and have either a 32MB ATI 7500 gpu (800) or a 64MB 9000 (1ghz), which seem reasonably powered, considering I am not a gamer. With the things I will most likely be doing with my laptop, the lower cpu speed is not as important as more screen real estate. So my question is this: If any owners of tiBooks of the model(s) I mentioned could chime in on their experiences with their machines and problems/complaints they have with them, I would be grateful. I do not really want this thread to be a "you should get an ibook instead...or an AlBook etc" so much as helping me get a realistic appraisal of what I should expect with a used TiBook of this vintage, in risks and of performance. Thanks.
