    Last year i purchased the Powerbook G4, thinking virtual pc would work a whole lot better than it actually does. Now they have the intel chip out, my question is, do they sell the 2.16GHz or 2.0 Intel Core Duo processor chip sold seperatly, if so, where can i buy it? Does anyone know if the Powerbook is able to support the chip as well?
    Im just looking to be able to run Bootcamp, because i need the ability to transfer between os's.

    you cannot install an intel chip in to a powerbook G4. The CPUs on the powerbooks are not removable, and even if it were, you couldn't just pop in an intel chip. If you really need to be able to run windows and VPC is not satisfactory than you need to sell the PB and buy an intel mac... sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
