Question Suggest a good NoteBook

Hey, People
So.......... Need a good Notebook to see what still pics I took while on location. (I'm going to buy a Canon EOS-1Ds camera that supports IEEE 1394 (4 pin firewire) only.) The Notebook should have at least a 12" screen, good resolution, at least 20GB & on the lighter side, (price no object, just let me know how much.) I'll prefer you pic out a newer model for me (no more than 3 yrs old, if so much) Thanks a lot People! Look foward to hearing your comments..........

Apple Ibook is the best option for your situation IMHO.

Has all that and more, and The model that would suit you can be had for probably under $1000

I would suggest a Sony VAIO Notebook. They are designed for multimedia work and have built-in firewire and more! They are very reliable.

Sony's Vaio line are pretty neat. Except I just read this 'shocking' news. (oh my, that was a bad pun)

Hey! Thanks! ....Do you know I thought of the same 2 Notebooks!! they are so sleek!, with tons of features! (not that i need all, lol) You'll must have read my mind.
I LOVE the Ibooks, Powerbooks etc. .I'm only staying away from them because I like my 'windows' & have Photoshop, Illustrator, & 4 others by Adobe, for Windows only. ........so I was looking at a substutite (for macs) & came across the VAIOs. I may settel on the Vaio but if someone else has suggestions I'll listen.
By the way, thanks for the 'heads up' "chalk" ....read the article, ....& it's not that bad, so I'm not worried.
Thanks again all

..By the way, How do you get those cool pics by your name? lol..
