Here's the deal. In the UK I get an academic discount, so the prices are: 12" iBook 1.2 GHz 60 GB HD Bluetooth Applecare Total: £853.18 (incl. £157 for Applecare) 12" Powerbook 1.33 GHz 60 GB Bluetooth Applecare Total: £1162.08 (incl. £220 for Applecare) What I want from a new machine is something that will last me 3-4 years for regular internet/word processing/DVD viewing/travelling/occasional game (e.g. WC3, Call-of-Duty...none of the new games obviously). For these purposes, is the extra processing/GPU power of the Powerbook worth the extra £300 (which is about USD$555, or CAD$675)?? Will the Powerbook remain functionally useful for much that longer than the iBook? Thanks!
