help me out here guys:

these are both the same price (1,550 after protection plan)

iBook G4 1.2GHz/256MB/60GB/Combo/AP Extreme Card/E/56K/ 14" TFT-Refurbished
PowerBook G4 1GHz/256MB/40GB/Combo/E/Aluminum/12"TFT-refurbished

the ibook is a bit faster and has a larger hard drive and a larger screen. but i really hate the design of the 14in ibook its just too white. i will be using this computer for video editing, picture editing and powerpoints.

which one should i get for what im using it for. almost immediately after i buy either model i will upgrade to 512mb of ram from ebay and then edit video using final cut pro. and i will be using photoshop for video editing.

my only gripe about the 14in ibook is the awkward keyboard side with the tiny speakers, it just looks weird.

the keyboard on the iBook and Powerbook are basically the same because the iSkin fits both of them, and i have the iBook G4 1.2Ghz and i love it and it doesn't look too white

i would get the 14inch iBook

iBook G3 (2001) 500MHz 384 RAM 9.2.2 / 10.2.8
Titanium PowerBook G4 (2001) 500MHz 768 RAM 9.2.2/10.2.8
Mac Pro (2007) 4x2.66GHz, 6GB RAM, 10.6.7
iPad 3G + iPhone 4

If you don't like all the white, paint it. That's what I plan on doing as soon as I decide on a design.
