hey all. my gf is a photojournalist and she is considering purchasing a new laptop at the moment. we talked over the deal, and here's what we came up with. 1. 1.67 GHz Powerbook G4 (15") 2. 2.0 GHz MacBook Pro we're able to receive discounts on the powerbook at $1399 through my brother, who is eligible for student discounts. i know that buying the powerbook will leave a lot more money for additional software, but then again, the new macbook pro's, the whole mactel switch, future softwares, the whole intel deal - that's making me think this through more carefully. in all other cases, without the whole intel thing, the powerbook is a sure buy, but is the macbook pro worth all the hype? how much faster can it be? and it's a first revision too, so, let me know what you guys think i should do. we've seen the rev. e powerbooks several times and the horizontal line problem doesn't bother us at all, if there are any. the macbook pro - come on, magsafe? no fw800? the pc-cards haven't moved on to the express card tech yet either, and we're used to using verizon's net service.
