I am contemplating selling my 20 inch iMac Core Duo. With that money I was thinking about buying a 12 inch powerbook g4 (have always liked the small powerbooks, and I think the macbooks have many problems). I would still have $1200, in my bank account...and after Christmas cash I would then buy one of the new 20 inch iMacs. I really just want a laptop right now, and dont need the power of the iMac. Feedback, or opinions on this?

I would sell the iMac and get the MacBook. Most of them don't in fact have problems, but all the problems I have heard about Apple seems to be fixing them. The 12 inch PB is a nice machine, but I think that you would get more milage out of a MB.

i agree that you'll get a lot out of the MB than you would a used PB. intel chips really blow the G4s outta the water!

also, i don't understand why you would want to get a 20" iMac later on. i'd invest in one machine that can do it all - maybe look into a 17" MBP unless you need portability. how about an ACD to hook up to your 12" PB or new MB?

Hmm, this is interesting. I guess for the same price of a refurbished 12 inch PB I could get a 2.0 ghz macbook from Macmall. Im pretty sure I can end up even selling the iMac and then getting the macbook. I just dont want the macbook to be overly hot, or have any problems. I dont know what to do really.
