04-26-2004, 02:39 PM #1fizGuestNew to Apple products: help me chose proper specs!
I'm new to these forums as well as the Apple world in general, so i'm rather lost as to what would be the best machine for me.
I'm a frugal student, so I'm trying to go for the minimum for what I would need. Particularly, proecssor/RAM combos.
There are some good deals out there for loaded 867mhz G4s. So my question is this: I primarily use photoshop, matlab and mathematica -- would 867 mhz (with, say, 640 mb of RAM) suffice for a Powerbook, or would it be worth shelling out the extra dough for, say, a 1.25 ghz one or at least a 1 ghz one?

Should be OK w/ the 867...

you should be just dandy with the 876, but it's fun to have the more power...especially since the recent update...either way, you're good.

I just buckled and bought a Powerbook 12" G4 1.33 ghz.
I wonder how long it will take to get here, considering I left all the options for the BTO as default.
