    Processor Upgrade
    I am new to this forum, so I don't know if this has been talked about before. If it has, can someone please point me in the right direction. If not, any and all input will be welcome.

    I have a PowerBook G4 with a 867 MHz processor.

    I want to up grade my processor. Has it been done before? I have talked to some people and they mentioned something about upgrade to a 1.5 MHz processor w/ a liquid cooling system. Anyone know of such processor?

    Thanks for your input in advance.

    Specs:
    PowerMac G5 Dual 2GHz (June 2004), 2.5GB, Airport, black 5G iPod 30GB, white MacBook 2.0 2GB
    There's no processor upgrade for th PowerBook G4...
    And as far as I know, the CPU is soldered, so there won't be any upgrades anyway...

    You probably shouldn't talk to these people very much anymore. Seriously though, as Avalon stated, you're going to have to stick with the processor that came with your PB.

    I know someone who overclocked his PowerBook, but I'm positive it was a Ti and not an Albook...

    The 867 is a Ti

    It is also a 12" Albook, like the one in my specs.
