Thread: Help me for my decision.
05-25-2004, 03:37 AM #firstname.lastname@example.orgGuestHelp me for my decision.
I'm owning a 12" iBook, I bought it for long time and now I decide to buy a new one. My choice is still a Apple Portable machine. Im considering which one is best for me and most affortable. As you guys think, iBook and PowerBook which one is better? I love the white color of the iBook but i think PowerBook is more powerful.
In all these machines, which one you i should choose?
- iBook 12"
- ibook 14"
- PowerBook 12" w/ Combo
- PowerBook 12" w/ SuperDrive
- PowerBook 15"
I'm a webdeveloper so My needs is a machine which can run Photoshop & DreamWeaver smothly. Listen to music (w/ my iPod of course), And play 3D sometimes for relaxing, Sync with handheld device, surf the internet wirelessly, and Bluetooth of course. My Pocket Money allows me up to the 15" PowerBook only, forget about 17".
So what do you guys think?

Personally I'd go for the 15" or 12" powerbook (combo drive). If your budget allows it, definitely go for the powerbook over the iBook. And if you're not doing video editing or the like, a superdrive seems superfluous.
On the other hand, if you go for the cheaper iBook, with the savings you make you could buy some very good software. If you already have the software then it's a no-brainer - the only choice you have to make is about screen size of the powerbook.I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

man if i had the money for a 15" i would do it, make sure you get the 1.5 Ghz (superdrive) the 1.5 will speed things up with photoshop and stuff and you will love the widescreen resolution!

the iBook doesnt have a line-in jack does it....cuz i am doing the EXACT same thing as this guy. Xcept that my pocket money wont get me a 15'' pb. I will need a line-in jack to plug in my guitar and keyboard for music editing on garageband.
