And I was content and enjoying it since it met all my needs and is all in all a very nice laptop. For everything I do, the iBook is perfect and is fast. But most of my mac colleagues bought the 15" Powerbook, and I can't help but feel a little left out. I really love the looks and functionality of the iBook and it does everything I need, but right now I feel like down the road I'll think "damn, I should have waited a bit longer and gotten a powerbook." For those of you who got the ibook over the powerbook (either the 12" over the 12" or 14" over the 15"), what were your reasons and thoughts?
