Hi, our son will be attending Philipps Academy, a boarding school. He say's that it would be great to have a computer in his dorm. Currently he owns an iBook G4 12 inch. Both my wife and I have PowerBook G4s, and the all around family use's the iMac G4 in the living room. My son is very well rounded with computers, he has the Adobe Creative Suite, Quark, Final Cut Pro, Office Pro, and once in a while he uses X11. He has a very extensive iTunes library, about 1200 songs. He loves Macs, so for his birthday next month we will definately surprise him with a new mac. What do you guys think is right for him? Take in count that he will be coming home on the weekends, so I think an iBook or PowerBook would be pretty descent for his travels accross state. Budget is not a problem with us at all, it's just that he has never really given a straight forward answer about which Mac he prefers. My wife and I where also considering maybe a G5 and a PowerBook or an iMac and an iBook. What tech specs do you believe would be necasarry for what he uses the Mac for (it will be customizable since we're going to purchase the products from the Apple Store Online) Thanks for any feedback in advance.
