I've been reading the useful posts here for many months now, and it's finally time for me to ask some questions myself as I look to become a switcher! So, I'd would like to ask for "objective" advice... What are the main hardware pros and cons between a 867 Mhz 12 PB and a 1 Ghz 12 iBook? For me, I will be using Office v. X, web site construction, casual digital imaging/manipulation, and Internet. If the prices are about the same, what are the reasons you would choose one over the other? Thanks for your input - you have the power to influence how I will compute for the next 3 years!
