And it has been rather pleasant. There’s almost nothing I miss, save for the large 17” screen. Things are marginally slower on the iBook, but not in a way I notice most of the time. I benefit from having everything in one place, especially handy when I travel. And it’s got a battery, which is a big help when the power goes out.
I think what I’m going to do when I get back to civilization is to pass this trusty iBook on to brother Johnny, sell the iMac (either using the vestibule method, or on eBay), and buy the upgraded 15 inch iBook, which has a bigger screen, a faster processor, and more memory.
