Hey everyone I read threads like thi sall the time, but I feel as though I sould bring it up again. Currently I am a high school student, and I am saving some money for a laptop or sub-notebook for school. I am trying to figure out if I would be best off buying a used machine, or saving for a new one. Also, there is the question of what platform. While I would prefer a Mac, my school is currently replacing everything with PC's. If I were to get a used machine, I would get either an iBook (clamshell) or a PB G3, and I would not get a used PC. If I went new, I would save for a while longer (like for the beginning of the next school year) and get a 14" iBook, or if my job works out (PC repair) a low end PB. If I went with a PC, I would most likely get a sub-notebook. So far I have looked and priced a Fujtisu P1000 and P2000, and a Sony PictureBook. What do you think, rationally, would be my best bet?
