    If you're thinking of spending $750 for a 667Mhz PB (or is it 867MHz? - I can't tell), a better choice is a refurb MacBook for $950 (stock 1.83GHz Core Duo) from the Apple store.

    I know, it's $200 more, but it's more than $200 better.

    I copy and pasted. Blame the website.



    I already have a Black Macbook... It's for my office, and I need about 10 of each but it's all so confusing I want others to decide for me...

    actually it says you have two 17" MBPs (why??) - are you purposely trying to waste everyone's time? :confused:

    Your sig tells me you have two 17" MPBs and G3 iBook.

    If you have two MBPs why would you get a 4 year old G4?

    Anyway, just to answer your original question and move on, the PB seems to be better.

    It's for work, not personal use and I need multiple quantity and these are the best deals I found. Thanks, I'll probably look into about 10 PB's.

    That site sells 500mHz Pismos for $700? I hardly can believe there is a market for those at that price... :p

    The PowerBook G4 in the 867MHz - would be my choice.
