The iBook is much more durable and sturdy than the Powerbook. Apple said they designed the iBook for students and the Powerbook for professionals. In testing, they dropped the iBook, stuck it in a freezer, had a kid jump his skateboard off of it, and then had several kids carry it around for a day in their backpacks and beat the snot out of it. In the end, the iBook was just fine with no damage.

Next up was the Powerbook. They dropped it, and it broke. End of test.

I have a Powerbook and I love it...but if you get one, get a case for it. Don't just stick it unprotected into your bag.
