    Yeah not gonna happen since the low voltage one's they have are the same clock speed as the current G4's and clock for clock the G4 is just as fast.

    Well pretty much true. The G5 does have a faster fsb that should help out during some activities. Still, performance between a G4 & a G5 is gonna be pretty close for most tasks.

    As I already said, "Power Book G5, don't hold your breath", a Power Book with a dual-core PowerPC G4 is much more likely.
