I looking to switch to apple and buy a 15" powerbook. Theres a couple of details I cant decide on.
Ive been looking at buying a new powerbook, which would cost me ~$2500 to get it upgraded to 128mb of video ram and the faster 5400 rpm hd, along with a single 512 stick of ram.
I'm trying to decide if its worth spending the extra money for these upgrades, or if i should just buy a refurbished powerbook, with the standard specs, and none of the small upgrades mentioned above. this route would cost me ~$2100.
I would hope to play some games, so I'm wondering if i should go for the extra video memory, and if I would appreciate the extra speed performance of the faster hd.
Thanks for any input. I'm having a hard time getting myself to spend this much money on a computer, but I really would like to have a powerbook.

As for the hard drive, I couldn't really tell you, since my PowerBook only has a 4200RPM drive. But I guess it would increase load times, etc. substantially. You may also want to look into 7200RPM laptop drives, they're not cheap but they come in up to 60GB of space. And it's almost double what you'd get with a 4200RPM drive.
Anyways, good luck with buying!
