I'm planning to buy a new laptop in the next couple weeks. I'm having a very hard time deciding between the iBook and the Powerbook. I'm leaning towards the 12" powerbook at this point, but I'd like more opinions. I'm a college student so I can get the educational discount, and while I can afford either machine, as any with any college student, price is important. I'll mostly be using the machine for the following (in addition to the usual email/web/word processing): Webdesign with Macromedia Studio MX2004 Photoshop Possibly some audio editing (using Bias Peak probably) Matlab (for Electrical Engineering classes) I'd also like to be able to do video editing with the Apple Production suite at some point, although it's not a certainty that I'll need it for that. I don't play games, so that's not a concern. So, which is it? iBook or Powerbook? P.S. This will be my first Mac of my own, although I've been using my Dad's old Powermac for 2 or 3 months.
