Here's the deal. Im 15 yrs old and there is one laptop for my family of 4 to share. I have everything a teen guy could want. I have an ipod, digital camera, all that stuff. I had no idea what i wanted this year 4 christmas. Then, i saw the iBooks when i first got my ipod and have fallen into the "halo effect". So, i plan to save up money and get a 12 in iBook. But, should I wait a month for the Intel ones or not? If one was to weigh out pros and cons of each, which would be better? I would use one for web surfing, ichat, MS office, and itunes. I think it would be best to get the last rev. PPC for stability issues. Is this correct? Or will Intel ones be much better? They might be cooler and a tad faster, but will there be anything new? Also, I hear that Yonah processors will be used for now and then really good processors called Merom will be used later. So wouldnt it be smart to wait a couple months for merom for everyone out there waiting for intel ibooks? Also, will leapord be compatible with PPC processors? Sry 4 all the questions but I would be very appreciative if they could all be answered.
