I have a dual G4 DP righ in my studio but I I wanted a lap top for remote recording as well. The ibooks had caught my eyes as you can get one for as low as $999, which is great for a mac. I had posted my intention and users had said that the imac was great, so I took the plunge. I am happy to report that I bought a reconditioned 1.2 GHz from the apple site for $799 and an extra 512 GB of ram set me back another $70 or so and the little ibook is great! I already set up DP and I took it out with my 828 mkii and a firewire drive and a rack of pres and it worked flawlessly. When I got back I just pluged the firewire drive in my desktop and I was ready for mixing and editing. Plus the ibook is really a good looking laptop- which is just icing on the case. Life is good.
