I skimmed through some of the forums and I didn't see a list of places that people would recommend. I am thinking about a 14 inch ibook. I've seen them retail at 500 (I think at powermacs). Is this an acceptable price? My sig line is no longer valid, btw. I returned that computer only to go through about 4 more PCs in the last four years. I am sick of this. Sony Vaio just crashed, so I am off to buy a Mac.
