My question is this: I currently a 15'' PowerBook G4 1.5ghz/64vram/1.5Gb's Ram/80GB HD/250GB LaCie external HD. I just upgraded the ram from stock 512 to 1.5gbs and bought the 250GB LaCie external HD. Now im hoping that I can comfortably run Final Cut Studio, Because im pretty sure a G5 will not be floating my way anytime soon...

Do you think ill be safe?

Thanks,
Michael

Why wouldn't it be safe? That is what PowerBooks are designed for.

It runs great.

Rendering a lot of video at once will get it very very hot, however. Consider trying to get some air to the underside of the Powerbook.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Ya, that's about the only issue you'll have.

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

I use to use it all the time for final cut studio until i got my quad powermac..It worked well for me the only complaint I had was render time was insane.. but you just wait it out, and it works just as fine as any other computer would.
