I have a choice between an 12" 867Mhz PowerBook or a 12" 1.2Ghz iBook. Which one would you say is the better deal? The iBook has 512MB of RAM, other than that stock. The PowerBook has the same.

I would go with the iBook,I have owned both...The iBook has a faster CPU,larger L2 cache(256 vs 512),better video card,higher RAM capacity (iBook 1.25GB vs PowerBook 640MB),better Airport reception and its allot more durable.

Same with the others... as much as i love the PB.. the iBook has the better value. If you really want the PB.. just get a refurb model from apple.com or some other site. I think i remember seeing microcenter.com had one for 1099
