I will still have my Windows PC at home.

But I also will probably watch DVDs on it from time to time. Will the extra processing power of the Powerbook really make a big difference, or should I just put that extra $500 to upgrading an iBook with extra memory, etc...?


If time is not an issue--I might would wait and see how the new MacBooks are which I believe should be coming out sometime in the near future (Maybe June?). But if you need to purchase one now--I would suggest purchasing a MacBook Pro. Sure, you can not keep up with technology--but it just does not make sense to purchase an iBook to me--when you have newer/more powerful/efficient technology out there. Plus, if you just HATE the OSX operating system--you can still go back to Windows XP on the MacBook Pro.

Just my opinion,
