I've decided I want my first Mac to be either a refurb. 17-inch iMac or a refurb. 15-inch Powerbook. I just can't decide which one. Obviously the Powerbook has the edge on portability, a better video card, and that cool backlit keyboard. I'm going to be headed to graduate school in the Fall so I think it would be perfect to bring to class with me. Not to mention the envy factor. Total after tax and RAM upgrades from Crucial: $2423. The iMac has a bigger display and a faster Superdrive, but then I sacrifice the portability. It also has a lesser video card than the PB. Still, it could save me a couple hundred bucks, which I could put towards a DV Camcorder or something else cool like that. I'm also leaning towards the iMac because of the issues I've heard about the 15-inch PB (white spots on display, overheating, etc). Total after tax, RAM upgrades from Crucial, and an Airport Extreme card: $1968. Anyone have some advice? I'm going to be making the purchase next week. I'm so excited I think I'm going to wet myself. The only sucky part is the waiting.
