Both are the same price. I have the option of buying a Pismo 400mhz G3 with 512mb, 30 gig HD and a 3 month old battery. Or a 400Mhz G4 TiBook with 768mb and 10 gig and good battery. Good condition, very little paint chipped off. I just need it to run OSx and productivity type stuff, emails, notetaking, presentations etc, and if I really have to a little photoshop and illustrator. I already have a G4 powermac for work uses. Hard decision. I want it to last one year. I know the TiBooks had problems with them, and I know the Pismo's are robust and will proberly hold its value better and indeed soon be a collector item. I need someone to make the descision for me as I am indecisive myself (infact I want both Powerbooks) I like the look of the TiBook and would impress clients more, however I like the sturdy Pismo. I'm tending towards the Pismo at the moment. What would you buy???????
