Well, my Apple stock did great and I want to cash it out on a 12"er. I like the case of the ibook, seems like it will take a beating better than the PB, I'll be writing on it mostly in a car. However, I like the thought of 64 vram as that will make the computer last longer. I guess it just comes down to the vram vs. tougher case. I have a rev. A iMac 1.8 for home stuff. I know the ibooks will be upgraded soon and dont expect the PB's to be as they just were. What are everyones experiences regarding case toughness with their ibooks and PB's? Thanks for your opinions.
