    I've wanted a an Apple PC for a looong time. I was considering a Mac Mini when they were released, but changed my mind to a Powerbook. I will mainly be using it for music. It will also be my only laptop since I'm thinking about selling my current.

    I currently have a Toshiba Portege M200 Convertible Tablet laptop. I love it, but don't use it that much. As of yesterday I'm seriously considering selling it and paying the difference for a Powerbook.

    Then I think about all this Intel switch stuff and I'm not sure what to do. I know the resulting products from the switch won't be out until 2007. Anyone know if Apple is planning on releasing a new Powerbook between now and then?

    How do games run on a Powerbook.

    Any thoughts are appreciated!

    I think I heard that the mac minis and the laptops will be the first to be affected by the switch.

    I wouldn't want to wait a year though. And as with all release dates, it will probably be pushed back.
