As soon as the next iBook revision comes and Tiger is shipping on them, I'm planning on getting a 12" iBook. One lingering concern I have about the iBooks that is keeping me openminded toward a 12" PowerBook is the 32MB video card they come with. Having a G3 iMac with 16MB VRAM, I already know that it can become a probelem in a couple of revisons, since mine now can't even use QuartzExtreme, and I don't want to be left out in the cold again within a couple of OS revisions like I am now. The AppleInsider report about the coming iBook updates said something about upgraded video in the iBooks. Do you think it could be an upgrade to 64MB? That would be the only update I could see that makes sense. The current Radeon 9200 is already a good card, so I don't see them upgrading to a differnt 32MB card. Besides, the "consumer" iMac comes with the same amount of VRAM as the "high end" Power Mac. Another thing between the PB and iBook right now is standard RAM. I could buy a PB without having to upgrade the RAM, or get 768 for the price of upgrading to 512 in the iBook. Anybody care to guess at the chances of 512MB standard RAM in the iBook? From rumors I've heard, the last PB updates may be a trend that will carried out in the next wave of updates with everly thing getting 512 standard in the wave of updates. Anybody else know any thing about this? At $1499, the 12" PowerBook is a good deal compared to the current iBooks, but if I can get a 12" iBook with 64MB VRAM, 512MB RAM, and a 1.33GHz proccessor for $999(or even if they wend back up to $1099) I'd definiatly get one. Right now the PB wins against the current crop of iBooks, but I'm hoping the next update make them more attractive.
