I'm thinking about picking up an apple laptop for my last year of school and for law school. Nothing wrong with the one I have now, it's just HUGE. It's labeled as a "desktop replacement", it's a dell and is nice but is heavy as a preggo pig. I was looking at apple because 1) they pretty 2) they are solid 3) everyone I know swears by them 4) they don't crash and 5) they are light weight.
My question is, for you computer nerds, what the heck is the difference between the iBook and the Powerbook. I know the powerbook is a little bit more powerful I suppose but is that it? and by how much? I'd like to lug this sucker around to class with out it weighing 8lbs. Help guide me in the way of the right path.
Edit: I see now there is the MacBook Pro powered by Intel...lets throw that baby in the mix too.
