Bit of a conundrum...kind of requires a simple backstory. I'm an Apple lover (while still keeping up with everything that goes on in tech)...it shows with how many Apple stickers I have in various places. Anyway, I used to have a Macbook but mysteriously the motherboard died and I didn't have AppleCare...so I got stuck with an HP laptop with Win7 that's actually treating me OK. I've gone only a few months without a Mac and was doing OK til I got back home and played around with my graphite iMac and realized how much I missed the more aesthetically pleasing Mac OS X (despite it being Panther). I've been thinking about getting a Mac Mini for sometime just as a segway machine until my dad purchases a MacBook Pro for me after I graduate college/get into med school. But then I saw this 12" PowerBook on sale in my local Craigslist...1.25GB RAM, 80GB HD, OS X.5, 1.33GHz G4, etc., all for $300. One or two keys are acting a little funky (scissor attachment for the keys are not working as they should), but I genuinely think it's a good deal. I'm stuck though...not to mention there's "iSlate". I don't care for it that much though, and I definitely won't care if it's not running OS X and instead is running iPhone OS. But I don't know what to do...is it OK, in this case to just stick with the somewhat old PowerBook? All I really need right now is a machine that will do Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as a good amount of web browsing and basic photo editing/storage. I should also add that I'm somewhat of an "old" Apple computer collector...along with the graphite iMac, I (will) have a graphite iMac. The 12" PowerBook definitely appeals to me on a collectable level...I just don't know if it's worth it. Thanks for reading this post!
