Hello all. As many of you know my journey to a working Mac has been long and hard. I am now the happy owner of a new Rev. D 12" Powerbook When I was buying a laptop I wanted one that I could hook to my 19" LCD display. I did not go with an iBook because it was not best suited for this type of activity. However, I find myself using the laptop out of home much more than I expected. I have noticed that hooking the laptop back up to the display is quite the task. I have to plug in all the cables again and then sometimes when I go to hook up the monitor the mouse pointer disappears! This take some tweaking around with to finally make it come back and gets very old. My question is will I hurt the powerbook if I continue to plug and unplug the mini-DVI adapter every day? I use the computer for web surfing, web design, e-mail, Office 2004 for mac, music (listening not creation), and watching movies. Would it be to my benefit to take advantage of the new Mac Mini and use that for home use and get an iBook for the road? I know both would probably be fast enough for me and if I sell my Powerbook I could get almost enough money to get both and break even. Is this something I should consider or do you all think I will be ok with my current setup? Just looking for some constructive opinions from a very well informed group of mac users Thanks all!
