Okay high, I'm going into college and I know how good the iBook is with it's rubber mounted hard drive and bullot proof plastic. I like it, but I need some more power and was thinking of a powerbook they look good and have a sturdy case to them that is about all I know about there construction. I was wondering if the Powerbook has some of these same sturdy constuction features of the iBook?

P.S.- Remember it has to liver throught my backpack with heavy books banging against it and my busy life with out marking the screen first time out.

Thanks!

From what i've heard, the build quality of the PB is just as good as that of the ibook, plus the casing is a robust aluminium, which should withstand life inside a rucksack...

But maybe just get the PB and a protective cover for it (www.tucano.it has some nice ones available through apple.com)

i have a 12inpb, and i bring it to school everyday.i think the pb is as just durable or even durable than the ibook.i mean as long as you protect it properly then u dont have to worry about it gettiong banged up.a nice padded laptop bag will do.
