So this week the logic board on my ibook g4 failed again but this time I am out of warranty. Thus I am out of a computer. I must buy a computer very soon and am looking at purchasing a new macbook. However I am unsure whether I should buy one of the newest ones (2.16, 1gb ram, 120gb hdd, 8x super) for the edu price of 1199 or the previous generation (2.0, 1gb ram, 80gb hdd, 6x superdrive) for edu price of 949 at the bookstore. Any thoughts? I generally use my computer for recreation purposes but also dabble in photoshop and final cut. No gpu needed, as motion is not a concern of mine.
