Check this comparison out: http://www.anandtech.com/mac/showdoc.aspx?i=2740

I find the comparison extreme well done. No BS. Some issues have not been tapped as much as I would have liked, that is:

less vertical pixels 900 vs 960 :(
no FW800 :mad:
no DL DVD RW :mad:
only 2 USBs :mad:

The article points out CLEARLY, that processor swapping is a NO NO (soldered, not socketed :mad:

:D

You would not want to see how a rev. E PB G4 compares... It is ugly...
