Hello everyone. I have been using macs for about a year. I came from the land of fixing PC's and I must say. I love the MAC . Anyhow. My first mac was a 12" iBook g4. Then I came into posession of a 15" Powerbook G4, for free none the less! I love it... but it is too big. I have been for the Macbook launch and now it is here however I am conflicted. My Powerbook is currently on eBay, I will be getting between $1500 and $1650 for it. I want to use that money and get the 2.0Ghz Macbook. I am getting the base 2.0Ghz and doing my own upgrades. There are a few things I do not like about the Macbook. Mostly heat.... The graphics trouble me a bit... I am not a gamer but I somehow feel apprehension toward buying it especially since a new Rev may come within the next few months and have something better. Then there is Merom, which may hit the Macbook. I know I could wait forever, but jumping in on Rev A is a little scary, especially hearing about heat, whining, and mooing. I am also pondering a MBP, however I really think 15" is too big, because I am not in love with my current Powerbook as far as size goes. However, it will be a little while before I get a true desktop and I felt immensly restricted trying to edit my photography on the 12" ibook. So again, conflicted. In addition there are a slew of problems with the MBP as well. And I will have to wait and save more money. I also thought about the iMac since it is similar in price to the Macbook. My only gripe here is that I think I will want something a bit beefier for my real machine and the iMac is more of a desktop. So... yeah. I want to wait for Conroe mac pro's (my assumed name of the PowerMac's). So basically portability is what I am looking for. I realize I am answering my own questions. I really need some words of comfort for me to buy a current Intel book. One other thing i though about is buying a Dual g4 and a nice screen, I think both would be a good investment. I surely need a nice editing monitor as well. So yeah. Let's discuss and help me come to a decision. Oh yeah. I want to dump the Powerbook. The values have come way down in the resale market and I want to get a good price for this thing.
