JonnyX sent me this link to an interesting article comparing the iBook line to the PowerBook line. The ultimate conclusion is that the iBooks are pretty durned good, and the delta is not as big as it once was. Good to hear, since my iBook is coming regardless what the article says.
JonnyX also tells me about some guys who set up something that would communicate the IP address of the notebook every time it connected to the internet. That way, if someone steals it you can use that information to try to track them down. I believe I shall do that!
Update: As eagle-eyed readers will note, I forgot to include the goldurned link to the article! Damn Mondays.
