I first started using Mac's in January 2003. It was an iMac G3 600Mhz (£600), I had it for 2 years then I sold it and upgraded to an eMac G4 1.25Ghz (£550) - which I had for a year. Then I sold it and bought myself the iBook 1.42Ghz (£900). After getting the laptop and having the portability - especially since I have wireless - I couldn't go back to using a desktop computer. I have sold the iBook today on eBay. I got £455 for it, which I suppose is good considering I've had two years use and it has one year of AppleCare left. I was intending to search on eBay and get a G4 12" PowerBook with the money... but I've thought of an even better idea - buying the entry model MacBook. It is £700, but with the Higher Education discount I could get it for £630. Now I don't know what to do... I've started thinking - if I get the PowerBook - how long will I actually have it? It's also out of warranty, and uses the old G4 processor. It's also second hand. All my Mac's have been new. The MacBook will be brand new, have a warranty which I get a year to extend, and be faster and more up-to-date. So basically it comes down to spending £200 and getting the MacBook, or spending nothing and getting a PowerBook G4. How is the MacBook build quality compared to the PowerBook? What would you do?
