Well I have final decided that the G4 iBook is the way to go. I have also been saving for much longer that I would like to and am ready to buy now. My main problem now is how to pay for it. I want the educational discount but I have to pay with two cards, but the online store does not allow this. I'm thinking that i could probibly do this at the physical store, I live in southern California so there are a few around here though the closest is about 30-45 min away. I was wondering if I could still get a cutom ordered machine there. (12" 800mhz G4 ibook w/ 60GB HDD, bluetooth, and Airport Extreme) if you know a better way to do this please let me know.
