So i've decided to get an ibook. I'll be getting it from the local apple reseller, but i'll bring in a printout from maczone.com (maczone.com has a special, $1,400 for ibook with extra 512 meg ram without rebate, with $50 rebate it is about $1,350 and my local apple reseller actually meets any price and any special thats going on, you just need proof). Now that thats outta the way heres the specs: 1 ghz g4 14" 256 + 512 meg ram (768 megs) 40 gig hd 10.3 (well duh) and 32 meg vram. I would say its sufficient for my needs, and it won't blow a whole in my dads pocket. I was a little iffy about ibook (i have heard of many cases of ibook g4 dieing) but i decided i'll back everything up on an external hd every 2-3 weeks (i should probly do that anyways because of all the school homework i'll hav next year). So whatta think?
