So the battery on my iBook G4 has died out after 2 1/2 years of student use (read: rough wear and tear). As I was thinking about getting a new battery, the thought occurred that I might just get a whole new computer. 800 mhz is not enough to run Dreamweaver and Photoshop well and the Powerbook is calling to me. However I read that they are making the switch to Intel come 2006. Assuming that it is early 2006, that is still a long way off. Does anyone think there will be an update sooner than Intel? Also, this site says "Only buy if you need it - reaching the end of the cycle". Is it the general consensus that it would be wiser to wait for the update, or would getting one now be a good move? I'm not entirely sure what the Intel update will mean, and it even scares me a bit. I love the way the Macs run right now, and planning to spend the big bucks to venture into the unknown makes me wary. It also may be quite a while until they come out in 2006 and I've got the itch. I would love some advice!!!! Thanks all. Cheers!
