I've decided to buy a 12" PB but I'm still not sure if this is the best choice for me. I'm going to be using it for backing up dvds, dvd to divx, dv editing sound editing watching movies and internet.The video card on this doesnt seem to be taht good and all the benchmarks on barefeats.com show taht the powerbooks even the 15 and 17 inch ones are slower than wintel ones even the centrinos. I need it to be portable too. I was set on the 12" but now after looking at the bench marks I'm not sure about this anymore. This is my 1st mac btw...so i dont want to regret buying it. Thanks! P.s. If you think i should get the PB 12 what can I do to speed it up?
