I bought a 15" PowerBook 3 weeks ago and love it. It's the 1.5GHz model. I upgraded the RAM to 1GB, the videocard to the 128MB ATI card and the HardDrive to 80GB and this thing is quite powerful but very portable.

I can use Photoshop, Flash and Dreamweaver all running at the same time with no slowdown (no beachballs).

All the talk about the PowerBooks getting an upgrade in January are just rumors. Apple themselves have even speculated that a G5 PowerBook won't be likely until late next year if even that early. If there are any upgrades it most likely will only be a speed bump with the procesor from 1.5 to 1.67 or 1.7GHZ and a small price cut like they did with the iBook just recently. This is just my opinion of what I've seen and heard from various sources but I took the plunge and the PowerBook now as I needed a laptop and I don't regret it one bit.

Just my 2 1/2 cents.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.
