here's the deal, right now i've got a rev.A 1GHz 17" powerbook and I love it, but i'm suffling computers in my family and i'm giving my machine to my father and getting a new one. the timing is great with the recent release of the pwerbook revisions, but I cannot decide which one i'd like. I live 9 months with the 17" and it was fantastic, but at times i wished I could just toss it in a bag and go, so I've been drawn to the 12" or 15". looking at recent benchmarks, like http://www.barefeats.com/pb11.html the 1.5 isn't much faster than the 1.33 so i was thinking, okay maybe i'll be okay with the 12" but I already have a firewire 800 external drive and would prefer the Radeon card, given that my past 2 macs had nVidia chips and i was left unimpressed. also, anyone moved down from 17" to 12" and been absolutely fed up with the small screen size? the only other issue is that I have recently gotten very involved in FCP projects and am sure I would appreciate a G5, but they are so overdue for an update that I am sure a week after I buy they would up the specs and I'd feel bad. so would it be better for my conscious to buy the powerbook, or should i go G5 and just be happy that it is roughly 4 times faster at rendering than my current machine... let me know some thoughts, or possible configs of these etc. i'm not looking top of the line, but somewhere near the middle of the road setup for balance of speed and price. oh and i think no matter what i do i should follow the standard advice of avoiding rumor sites for a while after purchase - i recommend this to everyone thanks in advance!
