I'm in the market for a new laptop now and I've decided to rejoin the Apple camp more than just the occaisional use of my old ibook. I was sold on just buying a new macbook but then I decided I wanted to order an intake for my car and some other random parts. Then the more I sat and thought about all I use my computer for, it made it hard for me to want to spend $1100+ on a new laptop. All I currently do on my PC is web browse and listen to music. So tonight I got the idea of looking into a used Powerbook on ebay. My only stipulation was that it be at least a 1.33ghz machine. My 500mhz g3 ibook is still tolerable but it struggles with flash and videos. I have memory and hard drives laying around so that is of no concern to me. I've been seeing 15" 1.5ghz g4 powerbooks going for around $600-700. My question is would you pay that much for one? Or would you just save up another $400-500 and get the new macbook. I know Apple equipment holds it's value like no other so the prices don't surprise me. Those old PB's were always an object of desire for me, especially the 12", but I don't know if it is a good idea to drop that much on one. I'm afraid that I will get it and regret that decision in 6 months or so when I want more horsepower. I've never had any experience using one of them in that speed range. The last powerbook I fooled around with was 867mhz. Any ideas/suggestions?
