Hey guys, im new to this board and to macs in general. I haven't had a mac years. I am currently using a dell dimension laptop with like 900mhz and 256mb of ram. i am strongly considering buying a 17in powerbook, however there are some issues that i would like your input on. i will be entering my first year of college in the fall. 1. is it worth waiting for the g5 powerbooks? 2. is the 17 in powerbook easy to transport(i mean 6 pounds much lighter than my dell, but do you guys ever have problems moving it around?) 3. theres always that stigma with apple and compatability. i know there are numerous computer labs with macs, but do you think ill ever really have a problem with compatability and windows users? 4. if i do go with the powerbook itll have to last at least 4 years, what specs do you think would be reasonable for this ..ram, graphics card, etc. thanks for the help.
