Although I'm unfortunatly typing this on a PC I have been a Apple fan scence i started useing them at school, using iMovie, and Techfair. I'm starting my Freshman year of highschool next year and I wanna by a laptop for school but i can't decide weither i should get a iBook or Powerbook. Either way I'm gonna get a Combo Drive and an Airport (Extreme) Card. If i did get a Powerbook it would be 12" with a A.P. Card. I think that a iBook would be just fine for text documents ect. but I also have a nice digital camra and wanna do some photo and movie editing taking advange of iPhoto and iMovie. I do think that the G4 would be nicer for that. Is the battery life shorter on the Powerbooks becouse of the G4? And how hot does it realy get?
