    I have a 12" 1 Ghz rev b powerbook G4. I have on it a 40 GB HD, 512 MB of ram, an airport extreme card, and an optical drive. Love it, I only have one regret, that I should of waited the 4 extra months to get he rev c's. But, there is nothing that I don't like about apple, mac, and powerbook.

    Just ordered a 1.5 Ghz 15" PB with 128MB video RAM, 5200RPM HD and 512MB RAM (1 DIMM). It will be my return to the Mac world after a few years break using a PC. Hope this baby doesn't take too long to get here!!

    Anyone order their machine with the same spec (it seems popular) and received theirs? How long did it take from order to landing on your doorstep?

    15" 1.33 ghz PB, combo drive. throwing 1 gig in it tomorrow so we'll see how she runs. Hopefully runs Pro Tools a bit better than my dual 500 gigabit g4. If not, keep your eyes on the classifieds!

    I got an ibook 933 and was going to sell it and get a G5, but deciced to stick withthe ibook. I did sell it and upgrade it to a 1G - and decided against a PB - will wait until a G5 laptop.
    I did upgrade the HD to a 7200 RPM drive - can't say I see much difference...

    Absolutely nothing recently. Last year: PB 12" Rev A SD, JBL Creatures, Epson S1 projector, lots of software. Thinking about getting a monitor, probably just an inexpensive 17" CRT. Love the 12" PB, but my eyes aren't getting any younger or stronger.
