Guys i posted this (or at least a related post) down at the Powerbook site but no one's helped me......

i would like to know the differences between the NEW 1.33ghz 15" P.B. (The cheaper one) and the Older 1.23ghz 15" powerbook (The cheaper one too) i'm talking about Both Aluminium Models (NOT the Alum. Vs. the Tita.) i think they are called Rev. B and Rev. C (but i don't know much about that)

So what are the other differences, (1.25 vs 1.33 THAT's OBVIOUS) but the others.......

The main thing to find out is if the system bus on the older Powerbook is as fast as the new one and of course the hard drive options

so it's definitely worth it to buy a 1.25 15" if short in money??

cuz i've been looking at ebay for example.....that with the price you pay for a new 1.33 15" COMBO, you can buy a 15" 1.25 Superdrive, maybe with more RAM,
