Awesome!

I have been thinking about getting an iBook too. Will have to go to SmalDog and take another look at them in person.

Did you get an Apple loan? Has anybody gotten an Apple Loan?

Shouldn't you be able to plug your old iMac keyboard in?

im with ya on those iBooks, ive wanted one really badly for about a year now.. if i get enuf money from working my *** off this christmas ill get it. (summer money is for school, winter money is for macs)

Ide read deep into the apple loan before you buy into it... bank loans would be better.

yeah the apple loan is definitely not the best. I read into it a bit and the interest rates can go really high, so i just used a fixed rate credit card that had a high enough limit to buy mine. Thats the only reason i have the card, is to buy this powerbook. But 7% interest is much better than the 26% i would have gotten with an apple loan.

Congrats. on your recent Power Book acquisition! I am in the process of toying with the Mac transition. I currently am running a PC (sorry) system and am eagerly awaiting input as to which route I should take in my transition. My feeling is that I should transition gently by purchasing the versatile Power Book first and if I am totally converted get a desktop later when the G5 wrinkles have been ironed out!

Any input will be considered valuable. I am looking at the 12" with 512 + 60.

the decision process depends on what you will be doing with it. If its just for e-mail, web browsing, word processing a powerbook would be a good option to start with. If you are going to use it for video editing or heavy processor intensive work like massive photoshopping, you probably should get the g5 first and then get a powerbook later. The powerbooks are powerful machines, but the G5 supposedly does everything so much better and faster, it would almost seem to be a waste.

I really don't do any processor intensive work, so I think the PowerBook will meet my needs for everyday use. I am a terrible procrastinator (like many), and am nervous about a complete switch-over all at once, hence the laptop route.

Do you agree that the PowerBook would be a good way to get acquainted with the OSX and Mac in general?
