    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.

    depending on what you are using the notebooks for.

    the G4 PBs are good enuf for most applications (including basic vector modelling and rendering). The thing you have to worry about is the amount of RAM you can buy <- freaking expensive

    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?

    I managed to get additional 512MB for $99 together with a 12" PB at the Comex show. Very good price.

    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?
