    Specs:
    PowerMac G5 Dual 2GHz (June 2004), 2.5GB, Airport, black 5G iPod 30GB, white MacBook 2.0 2GB
    The bigger PowerBook G4 (15" and 17") has a 65W powersupply, while the 12" PowerBook and the iBooks have a 45W powersupply.
    That means that you can use a 65W powersupply to charge an iBook or 12" PowerBook, but you can't use a 45W powersupply to charge a 15" & 17" PowerBook. It's not powerfull enough to charge their bigger battery.

    Thank-you for that info, i will now NOT spend a small fortune on a new power supply, just use my old G3 one.
