Hey all I am new here (wish I had found this forum a few years back when I was the Teacher Leader for our ibook MLTI program). I need some help we have about $700 to spend on a new laptop my ibook g3 has limped along for awhile with the logic board problem and it is time to replace it, which is sad for me because I dearly love this laptop. I would like to get an iBook G4 or a G4 Powerbook and am looking for some general advice as to who can get me the most computer for my money. I had been looking on Gainsaver but after seeing some of the reviews here I stopped looking there and moved to mac of all trades. A few questions I would really appreciate help on (my DH keeps saying "I don't care" so he is no help): 1) If you had a choice would go with a larger screen or a faster processor (I use this mostly for internet, some working with photos, downloading information and patterns and doing general family stuff -- minimal games) 2) Because this will be an older laptop to start with should I purchase an extended warranty or will I be relatively "safe" without one? (I just keep having nightmares of getting a new to me ibook/powerbook owning it for 31 days and the stupid graphics chip going on the logic board -- this ibook the graphics chip whent 3 weeks after it was outside of the recall timeline). 3)I just need some help --- please And if you would like I can show you what this ibook looks like now -- we use a woodworking clamp over the graphics card to keep the screen from going wonky.
