So I finally saved enough money now to pull the trigger on a new Mac. Now I can't decide which one. I am torn between 3 models 12" PB 512MB DDR333 (256MB built-in + 256MB SO-DIMM) 80GB Ultra ATA drive @ 5400rpm 8x SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW) AirPort Extreme Card Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English 1.5GHz PowerPC G4 NVIDIA GeForce FX GO 5200 with 64MB DDR Video Memory 12.1-inch TFT Display Subtotal $1,499.00 12" iBook 256MB DDR266 SDRAM (built-in) 60GB Ultra ATA drive Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) AirPort Extreme Card Keyboard & Mac OS X - U.S. English 12-inch TFT XGA display 1.2GHz PowerPC G4 ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 w/ 32MB DDR video memory 512 MB RAM stick (third party $50) Subtotal $1,066.00 17" iMac G5 512MB DDR400 SDRAM - 1 DIMM 160GB Serial ATA drive SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD+RW/CD-RW) Keyboard and Mouse + Mac OS X - U.S. English 56Kbps Modem 17-inch widescreen LCD 2GHz PowerPC G5 ATI Radeon 9600 with 128MB DDR Video Memory AirPort Extreme Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR Subtotal $1,399.00 This will be my first Mac. I can't decide if I should get the cheaper iBook just to sample OS X until the new intel Macs appear. Or should I go for the PB or iMac to take advantage of Core Image and a Superdrive? Mostly I use my Mac for internet, MS Office, iLife apps. They only game I am playing right now is WoW (how does that run on an iBook?) I am leaning toward the PB because I would like the portability, Superdrive, and I have an external monitor.
