    1.33 or 1.5?
    will i notice any difference in performance b/w 1.33 Mhz or 1.5 Mhz processors? I want to get a powerbook but can't decide yet. Both will have 1 Gb of RAM. I will be using this for Video and Photo applications. Will I also notice if I upgrade to a 128 Mbps Video card.

    I am still thinking of either getting a powerbook or an HP laptop, but I am leaning on getting the pb.

    thanks.

    Here's what you do. Wait just a few more months until Apple annoucnes a new PowerBook update, which they will, and then get that. You won't be sorry if you wait because then, the 1.33GHz, and the 1.5GHz PowerBooks would be considered "slow." Just a suggestions because I am doing the same. I was going to go ahead any go with the 1.5Ghz one, but I am gonna wait till Apple updates the PowerBooks.

    what do you think the update will be to? Liek how fast of a processor. I doubt they'd bring the g5 to notebooks. It kinda makes me upset that I just bought a powerbook in like august and they update it within 6 months. I do know that when I just recently had a major problem with the logic board, after it taking so long to be repaired I complained and spoke with a supervisor. She said if anything ever happens call me and we'll straight up replace it for you. lol but im happy hopefully its not such a huge difference.

    I'm waiting for the new revisions as well, along with Tiger to release, then I am buying my new PB. Should be worth the upgrade

    i was waiting for the new version but i just crossed the river and got Dell 700m for $980 after tax(Centrino 1.6 256MB upgraded to 512MB, 60GB).
    I know, it's not a mac and i'm kinda sad(I've been a Mac user since '84), but for the price, i couldn't resist. And no, i didn't wanna get 1GHz iBook... I wanted the 1.33 or 1.5 15" Powerbook, but it would cost me another grand and then some.

    1.2 GHZ iBoook will kick the crap out of that thing(In allllll aspects)....it may cost an extra hundred dollars...But I have 7 computers.. I currently only have 1 one them a Mac, which is this lovely beauty I'm typing on. And do you know why I'm using the Mac to type this? Because the others are ALL Dells. Because it's the only computer in the house that works. Now, don't go off and say that it's because I don't maintain them. I personally maintain them. Virus scans every 4 days, spyware check and removal every day, each with its own firewall..And guess how many still work?
    A big ol' fat goose egg.


    I know Dell very well. Quite honestly, a retarded pineapple could make a better built computer.

    If you'd like to see a real in depth of why I like Macs and not PCs, see http://www.bamerige.com/Apple-Just-Works.jpg
