    Is a 1.67 ghz powerbook 15 inch last revision with 2 gigs of ram a fair trade for a 20 inch iMac core duo stock?

    I say yes because they both are going for about the same price on the market (eBay, CL).

    Under that reasoning, I'm NOT supposed to trade a Powermac G5 2.5 dual for a stock Intel iMac.../sarcasm

    As the the PowerBook has a G4 processor, which is less powerful than a G5 which is slightly less powerful than an Intel Core Duo chip I would have thought you would go for the more powerful of the options.

    But thats just my reasoning...

    The iMac is more computer.

    I agree with this. I'd probably say it's about a fair trade. the iMac will definitely be faster, but the Powerbook has 2gbs of RAM and is plenty fast itself. If you need portability, you're making a good choice.

    I dont really need portability, but then again I dont really need the "power" of the iMac. Descisions...
