I need some opinions here. And I need to buy now, so this isn't one of those threads. I need a laptop for my wife. She only does basic Word Processing, Email, Internet, Music...etc. Nothing too serious. But this machine will have to last her a while (she has been using her eMachines Desktop since 2000), so I am trying to get the best machine I can without breaking my bank. That is why I thought referb. You can currenlty get this referbed: PowerBook G4 1.33GHz/ 256MB/ 60GB/ SuperDrive/ AP Extreme Card/ E/ 12-inch/ Aluminum - Apple Certified Refurbished Your price: $1,299.00 Or I could go new: $1,699.00 12.1-inch TFT Display 1024x768 resolution 1.5GHz PowerPC G4 512MB DDR333 SDRAM 80GB Hard Drive NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 (64MB DDR) Full size keyboard 10/100BASE-T Ethernet FireWire 400 Analog audio in/out Mini-DVI out The slightly slower processer, less RAM (which I will upgrade myself), and smaller disk don't really bother me at all. Does anyone know about the differences between the two Video Cards? Will it be of any consequence for a machine that will never play a single game? Is there anything else that makes the new better than the referb for what my wife will use the computer for? Basically, are the extra features of the new model worth the $400? I ruled out an iBook because I think they will be updated soon and I need to buy now. If you can convience me to go for the iBook, go for it! Thanks in Advance for all the opinions.
