    New Powerbook Vs. Old. P.b.
    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.......

    Video RAM: 64 MB
    Maximum VRAM: 128 MB (BTO option on 1.5 GHz model)
    Graphics accelerator card: ATI Mobility Radeon 9700

    Specs:
    G4 1Ghz OS X 10.4.7
    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,

    There are identical except for graphics card....same revision of the processor just different clock speeds..same bus, same ram speed, same drives
