Hi everyone.

i was looking at laptops on Apple's website for university and noticed that an iBook 12" with a 60GB HD, Airport Extreme and Bluetooth installed costs $1300, while the PB 12" Combo only costs $300 more, and has all of that already. i'd never really thought about a PB because they seemed so expensive and "professional", but now i'm wondering. I'm planning on doing some light video work and soundtrack composition on the comp, so I'm wondering if i should just plunk down the extra 300? is the performance boost worth it?

QUOTE Thanks

actually you can get the 12in pb with the combo drive for my opinion its a better deal for you get a higher bus speed and higher megs in the video card and it look so much better.
QUOTE Thanks
