Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on which portable mac to buy. I am starting my second year of University in september and want to toss the old winblowz laptop. I have been looking at the new ibooks and they appeal to me 9mostly because of pricing much lower than a new TiPowerbook. With my educational discount the low end of the Ti family comes in at $3899 Canadian (a bit much for a student like me), whereas I can get a 12.1" ibook /w combo drive for $2324.00. I will be using it mostly for writing and such. I would also like to be runing 10.2 on the machine. Should I an older powerbook, without warranty, or should i bite the bullet and go with a new ibook? I've been trying to decide for the past few months. I also want the laptop to last me for the next 5 or 6 years. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to hear some opinions on the two machines. Thanks. BTW I love this board, even though I haven't posted much, I do lurk, all is good.
