So I'm almsot certain I'm switching, but I'm still having some doubts and I haven't spent enough time in the Apple store to answer my own questions. Basically, I was wondering if the powerbook is fast enough for normal tasks (email, internet, word processing, downloading, music, etc.). I'm sure that it is, but I can't get a handle on how well the G4 handles multitasking (i.e. if I tried to do all the normal tasks at the same time). Can anyone comment about that? FYI, I'm not a "troll", so don't treat me like one. I'm hoping that a powerbook will be exactly what I'm looking for.
