i have the latest rev 14" ibook g4, and although it is a great computer that does everything i need, there are a couple of reasons why i want a 12" powerbook: 1. i like the ability to be able to hook up the powerbook to an external display with no troubles at all and have everything run smoothly... unlike having to use a hack with the ibook and having only 16mb vram between each display. i like the fact i can have a lot more screen real estate when i do this method too! 2. i like the look of the powerbook better and i cant help but feel some sort of regret or "bad feeling" whenever another one of my friends or colleagues say they chose the powerbook over the ibook (which happens VERY frequently). i'm not a rich man and seeing as how i bought the ibook 6 months ago, i'd have to sell the ibook and add some extra $ to get a powerbook 12. the only thing i dont like about the powerbook 12 is the fact that the screen makes everything feel "bunched up" to me and it makes the display a bit uncomfortable. what are your thoughts? thanks in advance.
