Okay... I confess I asked earlier about a 12" PB (1.5 GHz) on sale at the local Best Buy. However, there's a really good deal on brand new 17" PBs (1.67 GHz, high res) comes to about $2400 Cdn or $2080 US. Even cheaper than the Canadian educational price! Even better, I might have some additional funds to actually make a more expensive purchase. Do you Apple veterans think the last of the 17" PB G4s is still worth it? By the way, my brother owns the 2nd last 17" PB with the original 1440 X 900 resolution and thinks the high res 1680 X 1050 would be too small display wise to work with. Can anybody with the latest high res version comment? And if you're wondering why I just don't go for the 15" MBP, I think I just really want a 17". I admit I'm greedy! Thanks.
