Well, I would go with abf on this one I, I would go for the OEM version or the cheapest reseller you can find. and then compare that withe the powerbook.
it depends tho, when that version of the sentia 1st came out they had a glossy screen that wasn't available on the stock uniwill. are they the same on either machine now? worth looking into. reviews of the sentia have noted the chassis build quality as being average (cheap plastic and creaky). it was actually one of the options i had been looking into (the uniwill version) and decided the chassis was poorly designed. fans pointing down (to your lap!) on a LAPTOP is a major no-no imo. i'd go w/ the PB. i hate to say this, but u may want to wait until April. it would be HIGHLY unlikely that Apple will not release new products on or around it's 30th birthday, which is April 1st.
then again, if u went w/ a stock 12" PB from amazon now, u could ebay it when a worthy revision of the smaller macbook pros come along. u would likely be able to get close to what u paid for it since u'd be buying for under academic pricing levels. many Apple notebooks take only a ~$100-200 price hit after they're a year old. they hold their value pretty well. the same can't be said for the uniwill based models.
