    That's a rip off, that's 450€ for a four to ten year old machine.

    Also the iBook is quite outdated for current photography editing work, especially if you shoot RAW.

    I have an iBook, and while it is capable of many thinks, editing 12MP RAW photos is not really "fun" to do on it.

    You have to be more specific and descriptive what your budget and especially what your needs are.

    Even though some might get tired of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG]button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    Again you should probably post what the specs are for the RM3000 that your paying. If it's a for a 4 year old MacBook Pro, I'd say not really worth it.

    Yes, but then the OP posted about the MacBook Pro for RM3000 which is why I asked about the specs.

    The newer the better; you can get a pretty good computer for that amount if you look around and strike lucky, or you may end up with a mediocre, but still good computer.
