Ok, so after a lifetime in MS-DOS and Windows I am planning to move onto the Apple platform because I am going to rip my hair out if I need to keep updating Windows patches, virus definitions and firewall patches. I want a powerbook, with superdrive, airport and backlit keyboard. I am looking at the 15" models, but can't decide if I want the 1 or 1.25 Ghz model. With the 1.25 I can downgrade to the 60gig hard drive, but I can't downgrade the Ram (I do want 512, but not at the price Apple charges!). Is there a noticeable difference between the extra 250 Mhz? Anybody have performance figures? Also, does the powerbooks come with the new iLife? I don't see Garageband in the included software. And my last question ... I know it has an S video output, but what output could I use to send the audio to my tv? That way I can play movies on my laptop but watch it on the tv. Thanks for reading this far. If you have any answers they'd be much appreciated.
