So my Pismo at home got fried. I basically used it to surf the web, emails, word processing, etc. However, since then I've gotten a miniDV camera and would like to do a bit of home movie editing. Nothing big, but I do have a wedding coming up and I'd kinda like to make some videos out of it. Now, I did get some insurance money out of it. Almost exactly enough to buy the lowest-end 700mhz iBook (I already have a firewire cd-writer). Option 2 is to use the money as a down payment and get the 12" PowerBook. My local Mac store gives interest free loans, so I'd be paying US$100 a month for a year. I've looked at some speed tests, though and it doesn't seem that much faster. And frankly the extra money could be put towards a Palm or iPod or something. So I guess the question is, is the PB worth it? (Yes, I can afford it, but is it worth it?) Thanks y'all.
