My poor TiBook is officially busted, and although I still maintain I didnt do anything wrong, AppleCare (very compassionately) told me that they have some type of solid evidence that I spilled a drink on my PowerBook and thus my warranty is void. After a long, arduous process of arguing and arguing, they've agreed to give me $100 off a new Mac and refund the remaining year on my AppleCare. The problem is that I don't have money to buy a new 15" PB now, and if I pull together everything I have, I can only afford an iBook or 12" PB at most. Plus we all know new IntelMac's are coming out next year, but I do need a laptop for grad school this fall. Should I (a) pull out my crappy old Dell laptop from my closet and wait out the PowerBooks next year? (Aren't they supposed to arrive early 2006?) Or should I (b) just bite the bullet and get an iBook or PB? Thanks in advance for your help.
