I used to own a 17" powerbook but had it stolen while working abroad. I knew I wouldn't be working abroad for sometime so I had replaced it with an iMac g5 20". However, I recently ordered a 12" ibook because I realized I still need some portability especially since I will be leaving the office for a few weeks in just a couple days. I think it will be a nice combo especially since combined it costs about the same as my old powerbook. Now I am just waiting on shipping and praying it makes it in time. I actually need the computer by Dec. 16th.at which time I will be leaving. I knew it would be 1-3 days before shipping and paid for 2 day shipping. Ordered on the 9th (3+2=5) gives me the 14th but forgetting about the weekend that could make it as late as the 16th. Too bad I leave that morning. Any chance it will make it?
