    Which one to get
    Hi guys,

    I am looking to buy an apple laptop for the first time I am currently using a dell Inspirion but find it too cumbersome for travel.

    Iíd really appreciate some advice one which one would be best for me. I obviously surf the net, do word processing, play a few games from time to time and use it for pictures and my ipod and thatís about it.

    I would like a decent one thatís not too heavy for travel without paying way over the odds for something with all the bells and whistles that I donít really need.

    Thanks

    Barbara

    Sounds like an iBook would be fine for you.

    Good attitude. Please tell us a little more about the games that you play. Are we talking solitaire and minesweeper or World of Warcraft and other graphics-intensive games?

    Really nothing much, i don't play any of the new action stuff just things like bejeweled, solitaire and a few arcade type games and not that often really just when my mind starts to drift a bit.

    12" iBook sounds like a good fit. it is light, compact, and very portable.

    Is the 14" ibook a good option for a slightly bigger screen as i'm used too a 15" Dell.

    Thanks for all your advice everyone

    yes but the 14 inch ibook is good, but may i make the suggestion of a a macbook? I think it would better suit you because it is intel now and therefore will be supported software wise for alot longer time to come.. ibook is good, but I think keeping up with latest technology is a good idea aswell.
