Right now I have about $1300 to spend on a new apple notebook. Enough for an iBook or the low end 12 inch powerbook after student discounts, and cram and Jam. Don't worry though this is not one of those iBook vs powerbook posts or at least not a normal one. As of this posting the iBook has not been updated for 129 days with an average of 155 days between updates. I want to know if it's worth waiting for an iBook update or if I should just buy the powerbook assuming that their will be no update till the G5 model some time next year. Really the only thing I will use my mac for is gaming and I can play war craft off my ipod on my dads G5 so their is no urgent need for me to update. Cram in jam will last till the 25 of september do you think will will see an iBook update by then? In any-case I am gonna wait till the paris show but after then I might cave.
