    I know going from the 1280x1024 lcd back to a 1024x768 CRT made things feel rather cramped, but you soon get used to it

    Best bet would be to apply the screen span hack (assuming it'll work with the new iBooks) and use your current screen when your at the desk, if your current screen has VGA of course,and use the internal screen elsewhere :)

    Performance wise, you'll have no problem what so ever, i had way more than that on my iMac and it never skipped a beat :cool:

    Well, what I would do if I were is if you have an Apple Retail Store near by, or a CompUSA, or local Apple Comuter Shop, I'd go there and use an iBook. Kinda like a try before you buy type thing. Then you know what you're getting before you buy it. If you feel you need a little more power and capability, then get something like a 12" PowerBook, or 15" PowerBook.

    Depends what your season is, and whether Lexan will compliment your natural coloring. Of course, you can always dress it up or down depending on how you accessorize...
