To get a more powerful portable, I just purchased an ibook from mcetech.com. It will be the 12in 800mhz g4 with a Superdrive (multi-drive, as it handles DVD+and- and has a 2x write speed. Way better than my powerbook. It will also come with a 60gig hd, and 640megs of ram and got the whole thing for 1399. If you are thinking about buying a refurb 12in Albook 867, you need to check out this deal. Better superdrive, better ram, better harddrive, same display, just get a dlink bluetooth adapter to use your wireless desktop with, and you are set! I will update this thread once the ibook arrives, and I have successfully burned a dvd. Note: The "Superdrive" DOES work with iDVD, and any other dvd app. Applecare is also NOT voided, as MCE is an authorized reseller/repair center for apple. The only thing is that applecare doesn't cover the upgraded drive. Oh, the only reason I am replacing my powerbook is because the fan keeps "rattling," and even with silent night, the fan runs all the time, even while just surfing and posting this (yes, I reset the pram 5 times after root install). Parts of the case are also separating (I get a full refund, so I got to rethink my purchase, and went ibook) I really like the ibooks, I feel a little more "different" then using the silver colored powerbooks, and I also don't like having a wireless mouse and keyboard, power adapter,and video dongles, that don't match the beautiful color of my computer, so to white I go!
