I've decided that I need an inexspensive backup machine in case something goes wrong with my 15" PB. I'd also like to have the extra portability for travelling that a 12" machine provides. I'm debating on whether to go with one of the new 12" iBooks for $1000, which seem to be an excellent value, or to get a refurb 12" PB for $1,300, which is a bit lighter and slimmer, but doesn't really have anything else that I need. I'm kind of leaning towards the iBook since it seems to be a better value, and frankly, has everything that I need. Does anyone have a compelling reason to go with the PB other than the fact that it is sexier?
