    I use it on a rev d 17er and it is fine, although rendering takes a bit longer.

    there isn't much of a difference between the last revision of the powerbooks. There wasn't even a speed bump, so you'd still be fine.

    Add a 7200 rpm hard drive instead of the slower ones, that may improve performance (I BELIEVE it comes standard with the HIGH-end powerbooks)

    Also get as much ram as possible.
