I am interested in a PowerBook which will run OS X - and - has a SCSI port.

Are there any PowerBooks that satisfy both those criteria?

If so, what are they.

your probably not going to find this at all..first of all any powerbook that can find that has a scsi card in it will probably not be able to run os x and none of the new powerbooks have that port type anymore. the only think i can think of is if you can find an adapter or a pcmcia card that is scsi if they have any of thos.
Do a search on google for it..

.hes right you wont find a pwrbk with a scsi port. if you do buy a pcmcia scsi adapter the transfer speed will be reduced to the transfer speed of pcmcia. cause even though the periperal is scsi interface its entering the computer through the PCMCIA i learned this the hard way with me buying a external SCSI HD and a card and i was pissed

I'd recommend a FireWire-SCSI adaptor.
