Hi! I've been a PC user all my life and due to a number of things (my iPod, that my workplace plans to switch entirely to Macs, that our business is very Mac related) it's time for me to get a Powerbook. The beefy programs I will be using are Photoshop, Illustrator, and some design software. I will also be using it for iTunes, my iPod, burning cds, etc. I likely won't be making any home movies and editing them or that sort of thing. I am pretty firmly set on a 15" Powerbook. I have decided that I just can't wait for the G5 Powerbook (since it's not likely to debut until early-mid next year. right?) and I have downloaded Adam Engst's ebook on buying Macs, which is very helpful. But I'm hoping to get some more personal feedback on how much RAM to get, to get a combo drive or superdrive, etc. Or, good places to buy a Powerbook. I'll also be hooking this Powerbook up to my old big clunky Dell moniter when I'm at work. I plan to buy an external keyboard and mouse, and hopefully a mouse with a right click button. And of course, will have to buy all new Adobe software. Anyway, any advice offered is much appreciated! Thanks!
