is there a battery life difference between 12 and 14 inches? does it make sense for me to get one now (or will intel ibooks come out soon?) i want a macbook pro but its way too expensive.

Yes the 14 in last longer, maybe by like 30 min - 1hr longer (I have a 14 ibook g4 and the battery life is superb, still can get 4 1/2 to 5 hrs and its a year old). The word going around is that the intel ibooks will come out in April.

if you don't HAVE to have one yet, i will would wait. They will probally update not only the processor, but the Video ram, hard drive size, etc.

Meh - I don't think it makes much of a difference either way.

My iBook is from mid 2004 and I still get a battery life of around 4,5 hours. (Screen dimmed only 1 or 2 bars).
