    After a painful money transfering and shipment waiting, I finally took my new 15.2" PowerBook G4 today...

    I know that they are about to release, but I had a friend coming back to Turkey from US, so that was my only chance to get this babe near to 45% cheaper than Turkey's prices with edu. disc, lower taxes, IMC premium and etc..

    I had a 12"PB Rev A, and I thought it would be kind a weird to handle a machine this big, but after all I loved it more than I expected.

    I wanted to share with you guys.. and.. I wanna ask something, what Revision is my PB???

    Congrats on getting the new PB, and saving a bundle. Glad there were no issues getting the PB into Turkey.

    The revision letters go by each model (12", 15", and 17" powerbooks are all seperate models). The Aluminum powerbook revision go a little somethin' like this:

    Rev. A 12" PB's have an 867 MHz Processor
    Rev A. 17" PB's have a 1 Ghz Processor
    15" PB's still Ti

    Rev B 12" PB's have a 1 GHz Processor
    Rev B 17" PB's have a 1.33 GHz Processor
    Rev A 15" PB's have a 1.25 or 1.00 Ghz processor

    Rev C 12" PB's have a 1.33 GHz Processor
    Rev C 17" PB's have a 1.5 GHz processor
    Rev B 15" PB's have a 1.33 or 1.5 GHz processor

    Hope that clears it up for ya!

    Here's how Mactracker has it:

    rev. A 12" PB's have an 867 MHz Processor
    rev. A 17" PB's have a 1 Ghz Processor
    The 15" PB's were still titanium while the 12" and 17" were aluminum.

    rev. B 12" PB's have a 1 GHz Processor
    rev. B 17" PB's have a 1.33 GHz Processor
    15" PB's have a 1.00 or 1.25 GHz processor
    All PB's are now aluminum

    rev. C 12" PB's have a 1.33 GHz Processor
    rev. C 17" PB's have a 1.5 GHz processor
    15" PB's have a 1.33 or 1.5 GHz processor

    In my opinion the latest 15" PB's are rev. B

    Well I did mine from memory... and my memory isn't great, so we all know how that turned out! I'll edit my post.
