If you dont want to read the whole story, I bolded the actual dilemma at the end. Thanks. Well Im new the Mac world. I have always mostly been a PC guy. Before I give you the reason for my debate between the two let me give you some background. I do have a gaming/work Windows PC that I use at home and so really buying a PB isn't affordable ( ) or necessary as I am a student on a limited budget. I use my PC for Web, Image Design, Coding and Maintenance/Administration of my site web servers. The only game I really play at the moment is WoW (Don't have time to frequent anything else), and I play it a whole lot . PC Specs: Athlon 64 3500+ Venice Core 2GB OCZ PC3200 DDR 2 - 36 GB WD Raptors (RAID 0) 2 - 250 GB Maxtor 7200 RPM IDE 2 - XFX 128mb Geforce 6600GT's (SLI) DVD-R Optical Drives, etc..... So after that long intro here is my situation. My Dell Inspiron 8200 is beat to hell so I traded it to a friend for 2 Samsung 930B LCDs. Now I am in need of another laptop for school and I figured what a perfect opportunity to pick up a Mac. I mainly plan to use this for school and playing WoW on the go. No big instances or anything I mainly use the PC for MC, ZG, etc. So I am on a budget and whichever iBook I get I plan to upgrade to 1GB of ram, but I was wondering if it will be well worth my $250 dollars extra to skip looking at a refurb'd 12 inch iBook at 1.2GHz/256MB/30GB/CD/Radeon 9200 and just save for a bit longer and pick up a new 12 inch iBook with 1.33GHz/512MB/AP extreme/40GB/Combo/Radeon 9550? The big "IF" for me is the Radeon 9550 because of the Core Image Support. Since I'm new to it all; what do you guys think? Is it worth the extra money for me to go with the newer one? Will I see a significant difference? Let me know and thanks for any help. I hope to soon be a new Mac Owner. Also another quick question. On the Crucial site it says the 1.33ghz 12inch iBook can take 1.5GB of RAM, and I see in some signatures here that people have 1.5GB in their iBooks. How is it possible if it only has one memory bank?
