    some questions from me
    I guess you all want me to switch and pretty much so do I though I will never be 'ooh I hate windows' because I don't. But if I can do what I want to do on a prettier more portable interface I will.
    Following are the questions I need to know the answers to or I won't switch. I've been looking around all night for the answers, but have found nothing concrete. My switch would be to a 12" powerbook g4.

    1. DVD+
    I read that with 10.3 and a suitable drive (which is possibly standard by now, Sony or something) Mac does support this- though not in its own iDVD, iEtc...

    2. G5
    Is there a possibility this will be coming onto the Powerbook within the next 6 months?

    3. I don't want to go into a shop and be conned into buying old stock. What is the current spec and software package I should make sure it has. And in relation to 1, how do i find out what the dvd drive is?

    Thanks loads, hope you can help soon.

    There's a on going thread in "APPLE RUMORS AND REPORTS" Have a read it will give u an idea, when its coming out. I personally donít recon itís coming out till late 2004 early 2005

    new os is panther 10.3.3 and the dvd-r/rw drive is called superdrive by apple. Go to apple.com there is a very helpful section for want to be switchers
