Hi, this is my first post, and I've been reading this website for a while, and I'd like to ask you folks some questions. I'm either going to get the 12 inch ibook or the 12 inch powerbook and hook it up to a Dell 2005FPW 20 inch monitor. Now I go to colllege on August 26th, but I can survive (I think) without a computer for like 2-3 weeks after school starts to get a computer (in case the update for the ibook (or even powerbook!) comes later than expected). I'm going to be a biology major, so no real hardcore usage right there and I will be using this computer for the next 4 years. I'm going to put a gig of ram (making it like 1.256 gigs of ram total) on either the ibook or powerbook. i don't really need the extra processing power of the powerbook however the aesthetics, the keyboard, and extra features more than make it up. thus, a major question is, is the 12 inch powerbook justified the extra 300-400 dollars for the dvi/vga dual screen capability (thus under warranty and doesn't need screen hack like ibook)), the extra firewire 800 port, the 80 gig hard drive, and superdrive? or should I go with the cheaper, 12 inch ibook. I plan to do stuff like internet surfing, music playing, video playing, text, nothing too intense. finally, if i wanted a powerbook 12 inch, if i bought it refurbished, would i still qualify for the cram and jam/printer/educational discounts? I'm going to the store but there is no reduced price for the extended warranty. Thanks!
