Hey guys, I'm having a really tough time making the decision of whether or not to buy a new Powerbook. Maybe you guys can talk some sense into me! Here's the situation. I currently own a Powerbook 667mhz with 512 MB Ram. As you can see from my signature I destroyed the screen. And having to hook my powerbook up to an external monitor everywhere I go just sucks (sort of defeats the purpose of having a notebook). Anyway, now for the dilemma. I have two choices: 1) Buy a new top of the range powerbook now with maxed out graphics card and 1GB of ram and a fast HDD. 2) Wait for an upgrade which is, as far as I can see, either going to be a dual core G4 or a G5. My guess is it'll come out in Jan/Feb 2005. Ok, so here's my question. How long is the current line of powerbooks going to last me? No doubt I will be upgrading to tiger as soon as its released. I want that to be able to run (very) smoothly. I'm not planning on upgrading for at least 3-4 years if a get a new powerbook (unless I stand on the screen again). My other concern is that if I get Rev. A next generation powerbook I'm gonna get stuck with the stuff with all the early stage issues. And that would just suck. I guess rev. B would be at least another 4-5 month wait though! I'm not in a real hurry to get one, but I'm just getting fed up with my current set up! All help is appreciated! EDIT: I'm not really a pro user, I use mostly iLife, Office, Internet, Photoshop. I just want a laptop that'll blow the socks off any new Dell Hope that'll help you in helping me find a solution to my dilemma.
