I'm heading off to college and I'm looking for a cheap, light laptop to take with me. I'm considering picking up an ibook, specifically, the 12" 1 ghz G4 But I've got a few questions about it first. First of all, how difficult is it to share files between an ibook and a PC? Say I wrote a paper, and needed to transfer it to PC, could I just transfer it through a usb flash drive? Or via e-mail? Would the files be compatable with a PC? Are MS Office Mac files compatable with MS Office for the PC? Also, is it true that I can use the iPod as a portable hard drive? Cause if it is, I may use that to transfer files. Secondly, how much punishment can an ibook take? I'll probably be careful with it, but odds are it's going to take a few falls, and maybe some spilled drinks and food Thirdly, how does the performance compare to a PC? Say we were comparing it to a 2 ghz Pentium 4? Is the ibook on par with the PC? What sort of PC would perform the same as this 1ghz G4 ibook? I really don't know much about how Mac specs affect it's performance All I really want is a nice, simple, affordable laptop. Something that'll let do some word processing, while surfing the internet, running aim and listening to music all at the same time Can I get this out of the ibook?
