    I think a dual chip PB G4 is posible. It might only use two chips when plugged in, like PC notebooks only going at full speed when plugged in (to a power source).

    Also one PC company has managed to fit a desktop pentium 3 chip into a portable, and everyone who uses PC's will know how hot the P3 gets. So it is not imposible to fit 2 G4 chips into a powerbook and have it not overheat.

    G4 Duals are out there

    Dual G4's have been in the ring since the January but ran too hot According to a source.

    If they have figured out how to get the heat converted back into Juice for the battery or reduce the heat and keep the speed Battery life may not be overly sacrificed.

    Dual Powerbook are going to come sometime this year. When is a guess.
