    I see the 12 inch iBook has 32 MB of graphics while the 12 inch PowerBook has 64 MB of graphics. What about integrated versus dedicated? Are either of these models dedicated graphics? Thanks

    both have their own gpu soldered onto the logic board. the only machine that apple currently has that uses integrated graphics is the intel mac mini.

    The 12" iBook has a ATI Mobility Radeon 9550 graphics card.

    The 12" PowerBook has a NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 graphics card.

    No integrated graphics for either, yet. There are speculations that the new Intel iBooks/MacBooks will have intergrated graphics, like the new Mac minis.

    although it should be noted that even with Integrated Graphics, the updated Intel iBooks/MacBooks still will/should see better graphics performance over the current chipset that is present in the line.
