I'm using a Rev B 1ghz 12" Powerbook with Superdrive.....and waiting for yet to be released G5 Powerbook ..... hopefully there's one.

Don't think it'll be soon as Apple had announced that it was quite difficult to get the G5 processor to fit into a notebook, with heat problems and all that.

I have a 14 inch iBook G4 and a 12 inch PowerBook G4....
One thing I noticed is that with Airport Extreme cards installed in both computers, I get better reception on my iBook than my Powerbook..... the same goes for the Powerbook 15 inch....
So it is one down for the Powerbook......
Anyway, both are good notebooks and have become my way of life after work....

Maybe the aluminium casing of the PBs shielded the RF too much?

Hold your horses...
Just to ask, why is the RAM for PBs expensive?
Isn't the rams used those SO-DIMM DDR-RAM modules that you can find in SLS? Or do you have to buy them from Apple only?
