The search for a laptop for my wife ended Saturday with a trip to the local Apple store. We left with a 12" iBook.
The price was good (especially with an educator's discount), the size is good, the style is good, and Sue originally used a Mac before the PC anyway. For the record, we are not going to casemod it, though it is cool that we could.
We're having some difficulty with the trackpad. Are there any secret tips out there for making it behave a little less flaky? We've tried the different settings, and it still seems prone to accidental movement while typing.
