I agree with most of the comments in this section, except for the one about not needing to get a tower. I have a 12.1 powerbook now and I love it. It really is the best portable laptop available. Unless its your only computer, in which I would want to get the 15". I am traveling in another country right now so portablility is key. However, when I return, the G5 will be sitting in front of me, b/c I need the power. I had a dual 1.25 G4 and its 10x faster than any laptop there is. Laptops are so great if you are on the go. The ultimate for me is this. Spend about 400 dollars less on a desktop system than you originally intended, then take that money and buy a 12.1 ibook. This gives you the best of all worlds. Power when you are at home, mostly needing it, and portability to watch DVD's or go to starbucks, or the library, or travel. That is the ultimate combination IMHO!

I thought about the same thing. Having a desktop and a laptop for those other times. I haven't been tempted to have two computers, although I know there's a good argument for it. I just love taking my computer, putting it in my bag or back on my desk. To me, it's like the best of both worlds.
I have a 600 iBook, have had for about 2 years and I love it, and with the G5 at home ont he desk I have the best of both worlds and it is great, plus by getting a refurb G5 and through the cuning use of eBay the cinema display for it was basically free B)
