    Final Cut Express II for an iBook?
    These are the system tech requirement for FCE II:

    a) Macintosh computer with a 350MHz PowerPC G4 or G5 processor and AGP graphics card.
    b) RT Extreme requires a 500MHz PowerPC G4 (550MHz for PowerBook G4) or G5 processor or any dual PowerPC G4 or G5 processors.
    c) Mac OS X v10.2.5 or later.
    d) QuickTime 6.4 or later.
    e) 384MB of RAM (512MB required for RT Extreme).
    f) 40MB of available disk space required for installation.

    I have a 12" iBook and wondering if it is enough to handle the video editing software.
    a) Not sure because I have a G4 800mhz, not a PowerPC G4. Is it okay?
    b) Same - not a PowerPC
    c) Check
    d) Check
    e) Check
    f) Check

    you are right...the first version that came up was just called a Power PC if im right and then it evolved into a G3 G4 and now G5, actually G3 was the first PowerPC chip was it not ?
