Thread: Thinking about 12" iBook G4
12-11-2003, 05:19 PM #1shadovGuestThinking about 12" iBook G4
I've been looking into iBooks for some time and the 12" G4 model looks quite promising. Although it's more expensive than I was originally planning for. (My original plan was to get a x86 laptop for ~1000 euros and run Linux/BSD on it).
Then I started reading about that trackpad problem and now I'm a bit scared.
Do you think there is high probability of getting flawed one? And if I run into problems do you think they will be easily fixed?
I'm poor student and 1300 euros (thats what iBook + AE costs here) is big money for me. I don't want to spend it on crappy hardware.
Also do you think it'll ship faster if I order standard iBook and Airport card separately?

You will love your new iBook.
I been using my new iBook every single day since I received it.
Apple and crappy hardware doesn't go together buddy.

G3 is an interesting option. However I'd only save 150 ~ 200 euros if I buy from the nearest retailer. And then I lose the slot loading combo drive. Plus I've heard G4 have better keyboard. I can do more digging and see if I find a better deal - If you think G3 are worth it.
