    Quick question guys, I currently have a Powerbook G4 17 inch with 1.5 Ghz, 2GB of RAM and 80HD. I love it, with the full powered RAM it flies, but, I HATE ITS SIZE, i mean its not that portable. I have at home a Mac Pro so the power im looking for i have it on that machine. I wanna try and change my Powerbook before the new ones arrive because i need PORTABILITY. Is it really a big of a difference? I mean i dont need the "power" of the powerbook because i have the macpro at home. With 2 GB of RAM, will a macbook (lets say the current ones) be really faster and more efficient than my old PB G4? I like the 17 screen but i need portability so bad! what do you guys recommend?

    Thanks!!!! Rob

    In every regard save gaming, the MacBook will wipe the floor with your old PowerBook.
