    That Powerbook will treat you right for years to come, plus it's portable, which is a big plus over the Mini. If it does what you nned it to do, there's no need to upgrade now. And the Mini really isn't that big of a bump up from a top-of-the-line G4 Powerbook. I say stick with what you have, you'll be happy enough for many years to come.

    I say keep your powerbook. It is portable, and you still have the option of using it as a desktop if the 15" screen is too small for you.:eek: It also has a good graphics card, as opposed to the minis graphics processor which uses the machines ram. If speed is a concern, why don't you search google for some benchmarks?

    Are you trading? or going to be selling your powerbook. Its not a good trade for you unless its a Apple LCD (newer version).
