    a G5 powerbook or a dual G4 powerbook?

    i am not sure about the need for the latter, but some may feel that there is not a distinct need (yet) for 64 bit computing in a portable

    Dual G4 is not going to happen, period.

    The G5 will see the light of day soon.

    I agree with mj_1903, there's no point to a dual G4 PowerBook. The new 15" and 17" PB's have very impressive xBench scores, as compared to the G4 towers. They perform more than well enough for a mobile computer. I also agree that the PowerBook G5 is sooner than many of us expect.

    I'm going with the crowd and have to say I can't see there ever being a dual G4 PB, the G5 PB shouldn't be to far away *crosses fingers*

    Dual G5.... :eek: :p :p

    nah, we'll see the G5 first, I can't imagine there ever been a Dual G4 version, it's too late in the day.... maybe a year ago.

    I know I'd have certainly would have loved a Dual PowerBook especially as I use mine as a total desktop replacement.... the option to have serious rendering performance would certainly come in handy...

    If Apple do squeeze in a G5 into the PowerBook sometime soon, I hope they manage to integrate the G5's cooler vents, love it!

    if they put a G5 in a powerbook sooner than late'04, i really hope they make it in a week - i'm buying a pb right now and holding the purchase until i hear from possible anniversary announcements...
