Hi, I love macs and always have, just switched in august to a iMac 2.4 SR and love it. I feel though that I would like just a little something to roam around the house with ( so it def. has to have an APX). I want a fairly good apple laptop (will run tiger... maybe leopard???) but it dosent have to be apowerhouse or anything like that. I am looking to spend around 500 (less is always better but am willing to go a little higher hahaha) I dont really remember to much about the powerbook era and was looking for some gidance on which one I should narrow it down on??? I like the 15" but, is the 12" to small?? Is the 17" to big???? What speeds are the ones worth looking at??? (Willing to go older as it will be cheaper) Where is a good place to pick one up? What was the differences between the titanium's and the aluminum's??? Hard drive isnt a big deal to me so I can save a little $$ there by getting a small HDD... def want the backlit keyboard!!!! ( U GOTTA LOVE THAT!! ) Thanks guys!!!!
