If thats all you are using it for, then it's a great choice. Personally, I am a pc person because I do a lot more than I could on that machine, but I have spent lots of time on 12inch ibook as well as the g4 powerbook. Since I do more than what you mention there, I would go for the powerbook if I got a mac, but when I used the ibook (I had one I used all throughout my last year of school, I conned the tech guy to let me use it when I was there) I used it for exactly what you described, internet through wireless, word processing, and listening to music. It is actually better than the powerbook in this case because it lasts so much longer and is a lot more convenient to carry around. I do have one suggestion though, if you get it and want to listen to a cd, copy it to the hd 1st (itunes works fine), just trust me on that. As for the keyboard, it's a pain at 1st, but you get quickly used to it so it's no big deal. And lastly, sorry Socrates7, but apple just announced the new powerbooks and there is no g5 yet http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2005...powerbook.html
so you will have to wait longer, but on the bright side, the prices are lower.
