Shall I upgrade?

Ok. So i've had my 12 inch Powerbook G4 for over a year now and I love it. But, with the intel line being complete I feel slightly out of the loop. If I were to sell my Powerbook should i get a macbook or an imac?? I just want to hear feedback. ask me questions that i might need to think about....

Depends on what you use it for ...

If you use your PowerBook primarily on the road and in portable environments, the MacBook is the way to go. However, if your PowerBook never leaves your desk, get the iMac, you'll love it.

Other variables to keep in mind - if your PowerBook is faster than 1ghz and the software you are using requires a pay upgrade for the universal binary (adobe cs/cs2, filemaker pro 7), keep the PowerBook. If you're using MS Office 04 primarily, you won't see a performance hit from Rosetta. If you already have apps that are universal (filemaker pro 8.5, apple final cut studio, iLife 06), then go for it as you won't be paying for the performance jump.

If you have an 867 mhz or slower PowerBook, by all means upgrade.
