    Has anyone checked out the refurb'd prices? I just checked this morning and the Powerbook prices are crazy low! $1700 for a 17" Superdrive? $1500 for a recent edition 15" Apple must really want to clear the warehouse pushing the INTEL transition. These are still good, more than usable machines for 40% off! Late model, won't have to guinea pig the new hardware. If I was in the market for one, I'd be all over this! I'm waiting on my 20" iMac! :p
    This is like when Apple was clearing out the iPod mini's for $159! The refurb page was loaded for about 2 weeks, and the wham! No more iPod mini's!

    The 15" only have the 64MB graphics cards though.

    Only 64 vid ram?

    64 is still enough for the vast majority of most people's needs. I currently have a G4 12" ibook,1.33 1.5 Gig Ram, with 1/2 that and it does everthing I need to just fine, including PS-Elements and light iMovie work. Tiger is "snappy" enough for me. A significant upgrade from my G3 iBook 900. I think those machines are still pretty spiffy. :)
