    About to purchase one of these beauties, but just wondering whether it's capable of watching YouTube content, especially in high definition.

    Thanks in advance.

    It'll be marginal at best. Your CPU usage will be very high and you are probably going to run into lockups. I have a 1.33ghz PowerBook and it definitely struggles with even SD Flash videos. Even my 2.0ghz iMac G5 can't handle HD YouTube content, although it plays back SD just fine.
