I have a question for current powerbook owners... how do the current models perform with the latest games on the market? I play alot of call of duty on the pc and i was wondering how games like that perform on the powerbooks? Would be nice to be able to play away from home.

Knights of the Old Republic, Call of Duty, Halo, Jedi Academy, Jedi Outcast, Warcraft III, and Star Wars Battlefront actually run really well on mine.

Call of Duty is based on the old Quake 3 Engine which means that it would run good on PB

It should hold up well with most games. Just don't expect massive frames and high resolutions.

This app will give you some idea:
