03-02-2005, 02:19 PM #1WallyGuestbest powerbook set up
Hey , im new to the forum and am currently using a new dell inspiron 700m pc notebook.
I know im going to switch to a mac because next year ill be heading to college and want a more stable pc along with the student discount plus im kinda fed up with all the crap that is associated with pcs.
Im know im going to buy a powerbook g4 probably a 15" and was wondering what the best set up is for the money, in terms of where to buy, apple care, ram, HD, etc.. im looking for the best possible configuration for the least amount of money though i know i want atleast 1 gig of ram and a 1.67 processor with 126 VDRam..
any suggestions would be nice along with the good and bad things associated with the new powerbook g4s,

mate im yet to find a store/site that sells them cheaper than apple with the discount
As for spec the one you have said that you want will be more than enough, but get the ram else where and install it your self, it doesnt kill off the warrenty either

If you buy your own RAM later on and install it yourself, then it will void your basic 1 Year Warranty. And also i think it will void AppleCare. I recommend you just get 512MB RAM and then later on if you require more, upgrade.

Seems like we'd be a bunch of fools if we voided our warranties by installing additional memory while using apple's own manual to guide us.
Sorry to sound harsh, but if you are right then maybe you can show us where it says that in the warranty. If not, then hopefully we can work together to avoid any mis-information.

I just ordered from the applestore online, and I chose to just upgrade to 1gig then and there. Why? Because the price on the ram (w/ student discount) was $135. Crucials extra 512 stick was about $122... so based on trusted brands, it seemed that the minimal savings were nill.
Now if you were going to buy a couple of 1gig sticks...
