I went to an apple store recently to llok at the 12in Powerbook. while there, i wandered over to the new ibooks (800&900). All i have to say is WOW! these things are seemingly twice as fast as the previous generation. So surprised, i played more, and found that the speed really kept on coming. Now i am certainly going with the iBook instead. How does that sound? any new iBook owners care to comment on their day to day use, and whether the speed increase i noticed is for real, or just a mirage? i would mostly be using it for word processing, internet, and occasional video.
