    Nope no chance.

    Photoshop and illustrator worked well, I used it for all the time I was at college plus two years after. But I found the screen is too small and it was too slow when working with big files. Now everything is going to be intel based anyway.

    Agreed. I have an iBook G4 and would definitely not subject that little b*tch to anything that GPU instensive. LOL

    I would say your best bet is something with a dedicated GPU, i.e. MBP, iMac, etc...

    However, I did use my PB G4 1.33 to do some OpenGL programming in college.

    Well, the iBook did have a dedicated GPU, but it still wouldn't be appropriate for intensive 3D work. But yes, I agree on either a MBP or an iMac. An iMac would be the cheapest.
