I've recently run into this crazy obsession. I want an iBook, but I have a Macbook. When I was looking into getting a new computer, I decided to wait, so that I would be able to get the newer Macbook, but now that I've had it, I keep looking back at the iBook, and I think to myself how much money I could potentially get for downgrading to an iBook, and I love the idea of the older PowerPC computer for some reason. (Basically, I could always think that my Macbook is outdated or have the BEST iBook possible. Course, my usage on either computer would be exactly the same, although I'm sure the iBook would be a tad slower. Here's my ideas: Trade Macbook for iBook plus cash. (Get to pay for some of the rent by doing this, hehe) Is this a terrible idea? Is the iBook really a decent enough computer to do this? I want a 12" so I'm also wondering about the screen and resolution, is the Macbook's resolution so much better that I would dislike the older iBook? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Even if it's just someone telling me to get over it all and enjoy the Macbook.
