    I currently own this 17" Powerbook G4. I'm wondering what you guys think about selling this and purchasing a MBP (off of craigslist) with that same money. It is
    15.4", 80G HD, 1.83 Intel Core Duo processor, and I haven't asked him how much memory is on it yet ..

    Anyway, the specs of my Powerbook G4 are as follows (taken from the craigslist post I bought it from)

    G4 processor at 1.67 Ghz
    2GB DDR Memory
    120GB Hard Drive
    Dual Layer Superdrive
    256mb Vram Ati Pro Graphics Card (Quartz Extreme Supported)
    2nd Display Support: Dual/Mirroring
    Max. Resolution: 1680 x 1050

    Do you think it's worth it to switch over? If you can tell me why or why not .. COOL!

    thanks in advance ..

    One of them will pwn the other. The one being pwned will be the G4.

    ^ What s/he said. MBP for the win. Just be careful not to get mugged, etc.

    It is mainly because of the processor? I mean, I guess I don't need the "BEST" right now but maybe if there is a HUGE difference and worth the upgrade if anyone is willing to convince ..
