    Yes. Well that is if you are looking for speed. Now for basic home use (email, web, word processor.....) its not too different, but comparing the two both with 1 GHz processors....

    Ibook Powerbook
    Level 2 Cache 256k 512k
    Memory 266MHz 333MHz
    Graphics 32mb video ram 64mb video ram
    Hard Drive Ultra ATA Ultra ATA/100

    There are a few others. It may not sound like much, but those little differences cen make a huge difference on processor intensive appplications.....

    Good luck. I just went through the same debate withmyself a week ago and I am very happy with my powerbook choice.
