    And the 12-inch didn't come with that much RAM either.

    I'm also not all that familiar with so-called "Benchmark Tests", but if you dropped both of them off a standard two-story apartment building, my guess is that both would suffer significant damage.

    But then, the G4 does have that extra RAM, so...

    The Powermac will be faster just because laptop parts tend to be slower in order to use less power.

    I have both and I don't think that you will be disappointed in the PB. I have the RAM almost maxed in the PM and maxed in the PB. The PM is noticeably faster due to increased RAM and better graphics card, but both are quite snappy. There isn't anything I do on one that I can't do on the other.
