Okay so here is my question. I am looking to upgrade from my Emac (800mhz,768ram,Sdrive) To a more portable solution...but sweet Wilma Flintstone the choice between ibook and PB is a hard one. I have basically passed on the idea of a 14' ibook as I don't like the feel, and the size and price on a 15',17' PB is out of my league. I am looking at either a 12' ibook Combodrive maxed out ram 80g drive and an external DVD writer. Or A 12 PB Superdrive with maxed out ram and again 80g drive. I would generally be doing the following with it. - Email etc.. general word processing stuff - Light web work - A bit of audio - Light film work (nothing huge just some indie short film stuff) - Some photowork. - The occasional dabble at a game or two just to pass the time I am having a big problem with trying to decide whether or not I really need the 64 video card. I am guessing that 32 is going to be left behind and don't really want to be left with a stoneage graphics machine. I will probably be grabbing a usb mic for some audio work too. And I will more than likely be grabbing this unit from the states as the exchange rate is favourable and they cost far, far, far too much here in NZ So any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
