Not Ready Yet
Authored by: scottkitts on Nov 30, '05 11:32:59PM

My last PowerBook lasted 5 years and was replaced with a 15 Al PowerBook as soon as they came a couple of years ago. It really isn't time for me to buy a new Mac yet, no matter what processor it has in it.

Funny, ever since they announced the switch, everyone suddenly seems to think PowerBooks are dog slow. I've got a 1GHz G4 with 1.25GB RAM and PhotoShop and 3D CAD sail along faster than I can tell it what to do. Guess I must be a slow mouser.

At least my laptop doesn't sound like one of those leaf blower equipped Dells trying to keep it's Intel iron cool.

Couldn't agree more! Have switched from a Dell laptop to a 12" iBook, can't fault the Mac for speed, stability, everything. All with a "slower" chip than my Dell.... and the battery lasts longer, and the wireless is better..

I going to bet that the Intel hardware is going to be real sweet... however, until the big mission critical apps (Photoshop, Final Cut, Logic, etc.) are running natively, migration could be slow. Picture an OS9-to-OSX like adoption curve.
