I did a special config comparison at the apple store website. Check this out, the 14 inch Ibook vs the 12 inch Powerbook when you pay $1499 for each. 14 Inch Ibook 1.42 Ghz G4 768 mb ram Superdrive 32mb ATI 9550 100 Gb Hardrive 12 Inch Powerbook 1.5 Ghz G4 512 mb ram Superdrive 64mb Nvida 80 Gb Hardrive 12 Inch Ibook 1.33 Ghz G4 1.5 Gb ram Combo Drive 32mb ATI 9550 100 GB Hardrive This is very interesting to me. Each one of these systems has it's own advantages. The Powerbook has fastest processor and best vid card. The 14 Inch Ibook is almost identical to the Powerbook with slightly worse processor and vid card but with slightly better hardrive and ram. The 12 inch Ibook I think is the best of the three for most people though. The processor speed is the slowest and no superdrive but with a 100 gb hardrive and 1.5 gb of ram I would probaly say that I think it is the config out of the three I would most like to have. I think though when you make a comparison like this though it is clear that the 12 inch Powerbook is priced right where it should be in comparisson to the Ibook.
