I'm in the market for a new laptop, and I am heartset on an apple product, because I am a photographer and I want to experiment with editing video, and such. I have narrowed it down to either one of the 12.1 inch models of the iBook and Powerbook, but not just based on the price. I like the portability and the battery life the 12 inch screen offers. My predicament is as follows. The iBook gives me 1.5GB ram, which is great for editing photos in photoshop, aperature, etc., but it only has a 1.33GHZ processor. The Powerbook on the other hand maxes out at 1.256GB of ram, but has a faster processor. In either model I'd upgrade to the 100GB hard drive and of course get the super drive. Price really isn't of any object, and if you can convince me to get a larger model, by all means, state your case. thanks OT, help out a mac newbie.
