Also,I would like to know how good is virtual pc if I'm going to use XP on iBook G4.My other applications would be mailing,video conferencing,text processing,light gaming and audio/video.

iBook is good enough. virtual pc is just an emulator.. i dont think it will b good. if u really what to use one thena MAX out yr ram mayb to 1.25gb coz its memory sucking. ya more or less yr other applications would need at lease a 512mb ram so i say GET IT!

Concerning your laptop needs, excluding SAP, the iBook is a good choice, with additional RAM. To max it out at 1.25GB would be best, but that's a question of budget, of course.
Now for SAP Id on't know...
I have an old copy of Virtual PC (I think it's version 5), which I installed under OS 9, with Windows 2000 to use AutoCAD, and to my surprise it works quite good on my Powermac g4 1.25.
I think that the actual Virtual PC 6.1 or even the future Virtual PC 7 will work better, especially under OS X, but it's ok for my needs.
But I don't know about SAP though...
