    Is it possible? I'd like to buy the highest processor upgrade for my PB G4 17". No chance of it going over 1GHz, maybe 1.67GHz?


    Also, is there any website w/ free instructions on how to install a processor?



    Thanks guys!!!

    I didn't think they made processor upgrades for PB G4s?

    there are upgrades for the 1ghz 17" powerbook, but not to 1.67ghz. You are limited to a 1.4ghz upgrade, and the only company that makes them, I believe is Daystar Tech. I think it is also around 400 dollars for the upgrade, but you can't do it yourself and must send it in.

    You might want to read a few reviews like this one before you do decide to upgrade it.

    I'd never trade even the 1st generation 17" PowerBook for an iBook. I cant imagine myself working on a 1024x768 display. Plus, I find aluminium case to be much more beautiful, and its also scratch-resistant.

    No problem. I just did a Google search for it and it came up like the first thing.
