Ok so my current PC is a 1.7ghz p4 256ram 32VRAM. Not good. I do some casual PS work and plan to start learning 3d modelling and do bigger PS work, for prints, tshirt and such. I also do some occasional gaming (I'm more of a console type of guy) Now, I have the feeling the 32vram of the ibook are not goig to cut it for the 3d modelling so I never really considered it. I set my eye on the 128vram 15" powerbook, because I felt the 128vram would give the PB a longer life. I want the laptop to last as long as possible. Now for the plot twist: I'm from Mexico so I can't get the custom 15 incher in here and a cousin of mine who lives in San Francisco is coming in one week's time (sept 23.) My question is, would it be too much of a risk to ask my cousin to get the PB and bring it with her or will all the new products be announced on the first day of the Paris expo so it's safe to get a powerbook if new ones aren't announced on the 20th? Thanks in advance to everyone who responds.
