Default Pro Tools and Apple laptops

I have a Mix3 system and thinking about an MBox with either a TiBook or an iBook .
I'm not sure which laptop to go with. Any experienced views would be appreciated.

Is there a real difference in PT performance between the 600Mhz iBook and the Ti 550?

Is there a critical comfort difference in their screen sizes?

Which one is more durable?

Are you using the internal or external drive for your PT audio?

The iBook is specifically designed to be dropped. The PowerBook is not.

I'm planning on getting an iBook and the MBox for doing on-location 2-track recording.

If you are editing on the laptop, screen size will be important. I'll just be recording and transfering to my big PT rig for editing.
