Thread: Ibook or Powerbook
02-08-2005, 10:20 AM #1proudlywelsh83GuestIbook or Powerbook
I currently have a 1.8 G5 Imac running 1Gb Ram and PhotoshopCS.
I do a lot of photography out and about and would like to shoot tethered on location.
I would also like to carry out editing on the move. I also use software called C1 Pro for RAW conversion. The files i produced after they are converted to 16Bit Tifs are genrally about 80Mb, few adjustment layers in photoshop bump them up to 200 - 300mb.
What are peoples experiences with Photoshop on Ibook abnd Powerbook. I'm looking at making a purchase soon in the next three weeks. Can anyone help on this issue.
What should I go for?

I had the same dilemma, take a look at my thread and personal conclusions
Honestly I'd go for the PB if you're editing files that large, due to the faster HDD & processor.

Many thanks for your reply. looks as though it would be the Powerbook. I'm off to the Regent Street Apple store this week so i'll take a closer look. I've been a true Mac convert only just had my G% and i'm already looking for a Laptop. I must be mad.
