My Latitude committed suicide yesterday while I was vacuuming, it jumped to it's death from my desk and landed on my hard wood floor. LIfe does go on and I'm going to need a portable of some nature I've been pondering tablets to replace it but I thought that I might be able to replace it with a 17" PowerBook. it'd be fun I'll be able to play with it and I still have all my old PowerPC apple SW. Yes I've gone to everymac and looked at all the options and yes I understand that the newest one is going to be the fastest but that doesn't imply it's the best. If you were going to buy a 17" PowerBook today which would you get?
