Sell MDD for a Powerbook?
I'm really thinking about selling my Powermac G4 MDD and buy a Powerbook G4.
Powermac G4 MDD
1.25 GB ram
4 160 GB hard drives
GeForce4 Ti 4600
and thats all i can think of right now.
And im looking to buy:
Powerbook G4 1.5-1.67Ghz
at least 1 GB ram
80 gb hard drive
Question is: IS it worth it? I used to use my mac allot for games and video. But not so much anymore. Will the powerbook have enough power? Or should I keep my MDD.
Question for powerbook users: PROS/ CONS?

1.5GHz PowerPC G4
ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 64MB of DDR SDRAM
80GB Ultra ATA/100; 5400 rpm
im still looking though

the powermac is definitely going to outperform a powerbook G4. But it's hardly night and day; if the powermac is fine for you, a powerbook G4 would be as well. But why do you want it? Need the portability?

yes thats the reason. Going to arizona for a week. And it would be nice to have for trips like that.
But I just hope power is not a BIG difference.
also I would upgrade ram on the powerbook 1GB +
