    Anyone got an opinion on the real life differences between a 1.2ghz, 1.33ghz and 1.42 ghz 14" iBook? Are the sudden motion sensor, bluetooth stuff, plus speed bump worth the money on the new machines? How much faster is a 1.42 than a 1.33 or 1.2? I have no idea and am thinking about getting another machine, cause I like my new 1.33 14" so much. And is the superdrive in the new iBook worth it?

    I've been on all 3 and I dont se much difference... the motion sensor is cool for showing off but ... who ever needs that? i guess if youre prone to drop your laptop then you should get that tho...

    bluetooth 2... um.. geez how many bt things can you have at once? its sort of faster but not ecerything out there is bt 2 so ... 1.1 works fine for now...

    the processor speed... well... not much there...

    the superdrive in the contrary.,. is very cool to have

    but dont upgrade yours... youre fine...

    I use the new trackpad feature constantly. It's like i can't live with out it!

    I guess you could use iScroll2 for that.

    Just my $.02 ;)
