Glorified web browsing machine?
I bought my iBook in March last year. It's the best money i've ever 
spent, been glued to me ever since. Love it.
Even the basic iBook (like mine) can handle 16 tracks of digital audio 
with real time effects (reverb etc), running REAL pro audio apps (the 
reason I bought the thing in first place),  plus everything else one 
would need, and it's a *nix machine. Wouldn't swap it for the world.
