Hey everyone, I am new here but have been lurking for a while now. I have come into some money and desperately need to replace my Ibook and Powerbook- G3's. The Ibook is ready to die any day now (she's been so good to me- purchased in 1998) and the Powerbook, I think it's a Pismo won't start up at all. I'd like to fix the Powerbook for my son to use, but that's a different issue and thread... My goal when I knew the money was coming in was to purchase the Powerbook 15 inch. I researched on Apple's site last month and figured this would be the best for what I need. Then, the new MacBook Pro Intel came about and I looked into that and its specs. I have been reading all of the threads on the MacBook Pro, it seems to have mixed reviews and thoughts. My concerns with the Intel MacBook are- new rev A, possible problems, and then the applications I have Photoshop, Word, Quicken etc... Would they work... I have enough $$ to purchase either computer but I don't have enough to buy all new apps. Mind you I am still OS9, so OSX is going to be new to me as it is. So, the money is coming next week and I go to Apple's website today to recheck specs on the 15 inch Powerbook and man, it is not there anymore. So this totally threw a monkey wrench into what I was going to do. (I do not want the 12 inch PB nor the 17 inch as I think it is too expensive.) What is a girl to do now???!!!! I read on these forums that they discontinued the 15 inch Powerbook, is this correct? But then I read some kind of news or product will be coming this Friday... I do not have time to wait for the Rev B MacBook Pro to come out as this Ibook will die any day now and I cannot be without a computer. However, I also do not want to purchase something that will be phased out in a few years as this is my one chance to get a new comp for many years to come. Another question- I have a Graphite Airport, will this run on the G4's? If I get the PowerBook G3 running and grab a new computer can I run them both on the Graphite Airport or do I need to get a newer Airport? Airport Extreme? Perhaps I should go with the 14 inch Ibook and get extra memory for it? I love the idea of the backlit keyboard that the PowerBook has though...I am so clueless at this point. Any input or ideas are welcome and appreciated. Thanks. Jennifer.
