G5 or PowerBook?
During April I was about to get a G4 PowerPC but I decided to wait for the G5.
My local store is about to have the G5 in stock, but a couple of friends told me that a PowerBook would be better for me, however I dont know if the PowerBook will live up to my expectations.
Will I be able to do the following with average performance on a 12" PowerBook? (12", 15" is too big for me to carry around)
Transfer video from my Sony IP-55 over FireWire and do slight video editing in Final Cut Pro 4, or Final Cut Express.
Do quite a lot of Photoshop work and web design.
Maybe Maya for 3D Modelling later on
If I can do all that on the 12" PowerBook with decent performance then I'll get it, since I want a Mac and a Laptop, and the PowerBook is both.
Thanks in Advance!

Maya 3D modelling would be a pain. The 12" PB is only a 867MHz without the L3 cache. I would wait and see if the oft rumored update happens soon. If they put a 1GHz with L3 cache, it would be perfect for you, me thinks.
Everything else would probably be fine though.
