I want a Mac. Not any Mac, a twelve inch PowerPC. After playing around with the new 13″ Macbook (Intel) for half an hour, I knew it wasn’t for me. Too bulky, odd shape, poor battery and Intel GMA graphics.
So, that leaves me with the 12″ iBook, and the 12″ Powerbook. Available in various configurations, I need at least 1.2GHz with 512MB. Powerbooks have a 5-hour battery, iBooks have a 6. Powerbooks usually feature 60GB and a Superdrive, iBooks start with around 40GB and a Combo. They’re identical in size, but the Powerbook weighs slightly more – and I always liked the piano white of the iBook better. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
