I am thinking of buying either a 12" ibook or a 12" powerBook. I only need it to surf the internet in the living room and to have a small laptop to travel every now and then. Oh yea watch DVDs some Excel and Word processing for work too. My concern is if I buy the ibook the low end one it will be out dated in a year or so. If I buy the PowerBook it is very expensive for my use. I was wondering when you guys buy Mac Laptops do you get the extended warranty. If you do that adds a couple of hundred dollars to the machine and it could put it out of my price range. I love the PowerBook look with the aluminum case. If I could get away without the extended warranty I could wait a little longer and get the great ooking PowerBook. What do you guys think?
