    I thought it was worth the $500 more. It's definintely a more powerful, faster machine. And yes..it doesn look amazing. In the end, it's really up to you. There is a difference in performance, and in look..you just have to decide for yourself if either are worth the 500...and say yes sir may I have another...

    Specs:
    20" iMac C2D 2.16ghz, 13" MacBook 2.0ghz, 60gb iPod vid, 1gb nano
    The difference between iBooks and PowerBooks was greatly diminished when the iBooks were upgarded to the G4

    Right now the PowerBook has the edge on screen size (12" 15" and 17" where the iBook only gets 12" and 14")
    and I believe the PowerBook is using slightly faster memory than the iBooks
