    Well, not really roaring, but since I deleted the old admin set up five years ago and installed a new admin and re-installed all the necessary basic software - since then my old trusted PowerBook G4 17" 1.67 is as fast again as new (on OS 10.5.8).

    Cleans away all the unnecessary rubbish accumulated over the years.

    So if you love your old PowerBook, set up a new admin, get rid of the old one - and enjoy your new PB.

    Shouldn't this be in the PowerBook forum? Good news, certainly, but there's a separate forum for PowerPC Macs. :)

    I hope I never sold my Cube, it would look so cool on my desk right now.

    I do believe that an old mac still falls under the category of "Apple Hardware"
    Why post at all if all you're gonna do is spoil the thread starter's post.

    If you really love your PB - give it SSD :p It will fly.

    I'd love a 12" Powerbook with an SSD! If I ever have an extra $600 to throw away, I'll do that.

    Love is blind ;) I got SSD in my 466 Clamshell. Bought this iBook for about 1/3 of SSD price :p PowerBook is next to upgrade.

    About $200 (for 64GB SSD) will be enough. Other solution is SATA SSD in optibay (Intel G2 80GB for example).
