Re: Advice on a iBook ...

I just checked apple.com and words cannot describe how I feel right
now since I just bought my TiBook last week. I am sooo disappointed,
still like my TiBook, but I feel cheated.

Do you know when these will actually be available?  Sure - you can
buy one now but when will you get it?

Well, this is no longer true.  The 600MHz iBook has a 100MHz bus.  The
500MHz model has a 66MHz bus.  Both the iBook and the newest TiBook have a
256KB cache on the chip.

Another difference that nobody is mentioning is the TiBook has a PCMCIA
slot where the iBook has none.  I use mine for better wireless ethernet
(that lucent/airport rig sucks) and to attach SCSI peripherals.  With the
iBook I guess you would have to resort to an IEEE-1394 <-> SCSI bridge?

The TiBook has gigabit ethernet and the iBook has 10/100.  This probably
doesn't matter to anyone but there it is.

Apple have just introduced a new 667 MHz TiBook with 16 MB Radeon
graphics.  This should be considerably zippier than the previous model.

I hope I have covered all the differences between these two laptops :)
