I am looking to buy an Apple laptop for taking notes, writing codes (Java, C++ etc.) and running an iPhone simulator. The cheapest deal that I have found so far is the following model: Apple 12" iBook Laptop 1.33Ghz 1G RAM 40G HD (Single Core) Mac OS X10.4, Tiger It seems a lot harder to find an affordable price on an Apple laptop than a PC. I have always been using PC and so I am not familiar with the speed and performance of an Apple laptop. I am looking for advices and experiences on the speed and performance on the laptop and/or whether it is suitable for my purpose. Thank you very much.
