I know there might be alot of these but the advice would be great!
From being a long time pc user I want to purchase a 15" powerbook. My delema is the intels coming out next year some time. Do you think its a good idea to purchase one now then later trade it in for the mactel powerbook? I would only loose a couple hundred im guessing. Also I heard about powerbooks being updated this year also for intel even comes out.

There is no for sure answer to when the Powerbook will make the switch to intel. We do know june of 06 the first ones will come. Its said that will be the mini and I would bet the iBooks and the eMac is its even still made. I would bet the Powermacs and Powerbooks will come later in 07. I just replaced my older Powerbook with a new 15" 1.67 and I have no regrets at all. The PPC stuff will be supports for a long time, even past the Intel switch over. Go get one now and enjoy it. Use it for as long as you can and then get a Intel model when the bugs are all out and its the opnly standard Mac.

I full agree with Acill, getting one now is perfectly fine. We don't know when Mactel models will come out, and PPC will continue to be supported for a long time. Also, Powerbooks hold their value quite well, and I don't think you'll lose much by buying now.
Technology is always changing, getting better. You simply have to pick your day, and buy. Tomorrow something better will be out, but whatever you buy today will still be good.
