Here's the story. I have a Dell Laptop (Inspiron 8200 for anyone who knows Dell), 1.6GHz Pentium 4-M, 512MB Ram, Radeon 9000 Mobility 64MB, and a Hitachi 60GB 7200 RPM HD. Personally I'm tired of breaking my back carrting this thing, its loosing some of its edge, and, of course, it uses Windows, which I'm definately tired of. So I was looking at the PowerBook 15" 1.5GHz listed on the Apple site, with the differences being 128MB RAM on the Grpahics Card. Though there are still a few things I'm unsure of before I make the switch. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can extend my warranty (as in get Applecare) right before my base warranty is finished even if something happens to my Powerbook? (they fixed something under warranty on my dell once and then I couldn't extend the warrany after that)? The second thing is whether I can put a Superdrive into my apple if I decided I dont need that right now, and whether I can put a 7200 RPM drive from my PC (after format) into my Apple. The only other question I would have would be whether MacOS can change keyboard layouts. On my PC I occasionaly type in Spanish, and changing the keyboard layout makes my keyboard like one that would be used in a spanish speaking country, where you can insert accented keys by typing, for instance, a + the ' symbol. Also, would the Apple run as fast or faster than my current PC, in any games, photoshop/illustrator, and basic desktop and desktop app use? I don't particulary want to get a SLOWER machine. Otherwise, I am guessing that making the switch would be the right thing to do, since I mostly use my computer from lots of documents, and sometimes photoshop and sometimes games (mostly graphically intensive, games like Halo, The Sims 2, Knights of the Old Republic, Splinter Cell, Simcity are all games I would purchase). Wow, that was a lot. Any advice what-so-ever would be greatly appreciated!
