    i currently have a 1.67ghz 64mb v-ram and was wondering how much it would cost me to upgrade to 128mb? and do you guys think its worth it for the price?

    Yup.

    Sell your PBook and buy a 128 Mb VRAM version.

    Alternatively. $2,399 for the upgrade and it comes with a free Powerbook.

    The VRAM is a factory thing - not upgradeable after the fact.

    Right. it's a completely different motherboard, as the video card is soldered onto the board.
