iBook vs. PowerBook Dilemma

Ive just orders a 12 iBook last week, its due to show up tomorrow or the day after. I beefed it w/ the 60GB HD, and Bluetooth.

After the PowerBook update Amazon dropped the price on the 12 PB w/ 60 GB HD to $1199 after rebate, just $138 more then Im getting the iBook for.

So here is my dilemma.
Do I keep the iBook, happy that its a nice machine.
Or
Ship it back, box unopened (for no fee) and order the 12 PowerBook?
QUOTE Thanks

For the $138 extra, I'd say your getting a much nicer system. I would definetly ship yours back, and get the new PowerBook. The PowerBook will also hold it's value longer, so if you sell it in the future for a new machine, you'll get more back for it.
