    Recently, my hard drive got screwed up and stopped working and making weird noises. I've had so much problem with that computer over the last three years and I decided to finally switch to Apple.

    As I am still attending school, I am getting an educational discount.

    1. I am not sure whether I should get an I-book or Powerbook. I am leaning towards Powerbook but I-book - with upgrade that they got recently- is cheaper and I could save money or buy other things. Which one would you guys recommend?

    2. Is it better to order rams when I order Powerbook - or I-book- or would it be cheaper to find a ram somewhere else?

    are you using it for design, video or sound editing? Then get a powerbook
    are you using it for writing papers, checking email and browsing the net? get an ibook
