Yeah these are ok, but they can be kind of slow. Especially starting up the machine. You'll get longer life out of a G4. I'd also recommend getting the 14". I'm a writer myself and there's nothing worse than hunching over a 12" laptop. Even the 13" Macbooks seem insanely bigger. Ergo, I'd definitely stay away from the beyond-tiny Asus.I'm seriously considering a clamshell ibook. They're under 200 on ebay. Any more opinions on these models?
Thanks! Yeah I think the 12 would be perfect for me because I usually use the laptop when laying down and I usually have it pretty close.The last Revs were 12"/1.33GHz and 14"/1.42GHz
Still speedy for today, and the 14" screen would be easy on the eyes (although I own an iBook G3 12" and I don't have any issues with the screen, it does however take some getting used to)
