Alright, so I've been planning to switch to a Mac since I bought my iPod last summer, and the time to replace my PC is now, since my wifi card is broken, and both of my harddrives are reportedly "corrupt" (the PC repairman who came out to check out the wifi card's words, not mine - I haven't had any hard drive problems). Anyways, I'd been planning on getting an iMac G5 after WWDC, but after convincing a friend whose heading off to University to get a Mac (15" Powerbook - she loves it), I've become envious of the portability of her new purchase. I don't NEED a laptop, although it would be a great benefit to have a portable computer. However I'm not sure how well it would hold up in the future, given that it's just a G4, and has no FW800 port (the next time I'd be replacing my computer would be exactly three years from now). On the otherside, as cool as I'm sure the new iMacs will look, the specs ThinkSecret's published aren't that great, and since they're not thought to ship until September 15th, I wouldn't have my hands on it until close to October, provided that Apple can a) Keep up with the demands and b) Ship to Canada at the same time they ship to the States (which I'm expecting, but you never know). Alternatively, I could have my hands on my Powerbook in a week, much more convenient for the start of school. My Planned Powerbook Specs (BTO): 1.33Ghz G4 12" Superdrive (4x) w/ 512 MB of RAM, 80GB, Dual-Screening with an already-owned 15" screen iMac Specs (guesses): 1.6Ghz G5 17" Superdrive (8x) w/ 512 MB of RAM, 160GB I'd mostly be doing just word processing, internet cruising and chatting with some casual (meaning hobby, starting with iMovie and possibly going up to FCE) video editing and DVD burning. I've been using Pinnacle Studio 7 and a 1x DVD Burner on my PC though, so anything'll be a step up. Advice greatly appreciated! Thanks!
