After looking at various Macs, more specifically Mac laptops, I finally settled on 14 inch iBook. I read criticisms that it's not that good, since the resolution is only 1024x768, but I've been running that resolution on my Windows PC with 17 inch CRT monitor, so it was no problem for me. I must say, I am very impressed. The toolbar at the bottom of the screen is incredibly easy to use, and I wonder how I could ever go back to using the Start Menu on Windows. The screen is great, and not shaky like my CRT monitor seemed to be. I've used the trackpad on many laptops and hated it, but I really like this one, as the two finger scroll method is ingenious. I do plan on buying the AppleCare warranty sometime within the year. Also, I want to add another gig of RAM soon. Mine also came with iLife 05, but I'm planning on getting the up to date one for $10 off of Apple. Right now, I've been looking for the ideal case. A friend of mine bought one from Apple for his 12 inch iBook. However, it would seem that cases for the 14 inch model are much less common than for the 12 inch model. Yes, I know the question has been asked to death for various other laptops, but are there good cases for the 14 inch iBook?
