Attention iBook Seekers: Buy a PowerBook! It's a much better machine, especially for students. Think about it: iBook PowerBook 12 inch 12 inch Combo Combo 1.2 GHz 1.5 GHz 30 GB HD 60 GB HD 256 MB RAM 512 MB RAM No CoreImage CoreImage Support Also, it doesn't really look the iBook will get an update: 1) Apple is overstocked on them 2) If they updated them, it would have happened by now. Also, even the update won't be as fast as the PowerBook. The iBook might get up to 1.5 GHz at the most. My sister got a PowerBook for college, and I helped her choose which computer to get. I really think the PowerBook will last her longer than the iBook. Just my thought.
