I've decided to get a mac to replace my aging PC (2.6 athlon, 512 RAM, 20GB HD , 3 year old graphics, 14" CRT screen) but can't decide what to get. The powermac is too expensive and big, the eMac is too CRTish, the mini is not powerful enough so I'm left with the iBook, the iMac and the PB. I will be getting edu discount and also will get £21 off with a coupon. PowerBook: £1039 with 768MB RAM Pros: Looks GREAT, best 12" laptop, better keyboard, better HD, superdrive if I need one Cons: Not as much software free, expensive iBook: £751 (12") with 60GB HD and 1GB RAM Pros: cheaper than the PB, nice software Cons: slower HD, looks worse than the PB iMac (17") £844 although I would spend another £82 to get a 1GB chip in bringing the RAM total to 1.5GB so thats £926 really. Pros: bigger screen, software, G5 Cons: iSight, not portable In terms of usage I would probably use it for internet, photo management when I finally put my travelling photos on the computer, iTunes (I already have a 15GB iPod). I might wanna do movie stuff but I dunno yet. The laptops appeal since they take up less space, I already have a wee-bee bag and I could take them around with me. Plus I really love the powerbooks. I will also be working on Word (or similar) and wanna play around with garageband. I don't care about games since I have a PS2 and will be getting a PS3. I do wanna get rid of my PC eventually though. I love the idea of working outside using wireless and just moving the book around the house. What should I do?
