    frankly there will not be a g5 powerbook. Repeat: There will never be a G5 PowerBook.

    The first Mactels will likely be Mac minis and iBooks using single-core Yonahs followed quickly by PowerBooks using dual-core Yonahs then the iMacs and finally the PowerMacs.

    but there rumour new ones are coming out this yr end...

    For me, I rather trade-in the iBook for a Nikkor 17-35mm plus a little top-up.

    It's true 512MB can't do much on the iBook, but the 17" is a PowerBook that's 4.6K. 3 times the amount of an iBook, not really a good recommendation unless it's necessary.

    Care to elaborate? I've never faced problems with burning discs with my ex-iBook.

    If you are already looking at buying an iBook, it will be good to get this promotion. See it as paying $36.11 monthly for 10mbps unlimited broadband for 3 years.

    If you see this promotion as getting a free iBook, chances are high you will not utilize your Mac much; and it will be a waste of money.

    well, my cousin's ibook bought last year, which is now a year and half yrs old.

    actually at first it could burn discs, but after about half a yr, it stopped. the screen would say, error. well, my cuz brought it down to apple at amk and after diagnostics, all they said was the optical drive needs to be changed. and they did it for free.

    now, i m still thinking wat was wrong ... could be internal error. no explanation was given even though my cuz probed furthur. they jus said, malfunctioning.

    So it's a hardware malfunctioned that got replaced and not a real issue as you mentioned in your previous post that iBook cannot burn discs.

    PS? If you intend to work on PS... you better max out the RAM available for the iBook.

    well 512mb is ok... but if u r doing heavy heavy heavy editing, i suggest max it out, more is better in this case.

    try opening 40 photos at one go, in a pc, hangs, in mac, way to go....

    Believe me... max it out - Advice coming from a Mac user with only 768MB RAM and is going to upgrade to max it out.
