    Hello, I was wondering if I could put a 64mb maybe even a 128mb video card in my iBook g4?
    Perhaps the Powerbook video card would work?

    I'm afraid not. All current Apple laptops and sub 24" iMacs use on-board graphics, be they dedicated graphics or integrated graphics (the latter being the case in the new MacBooks and Mac Minis). Basically, the graphics chip stuff is soldered onto the machine's logic board with pretty much no way to change it. Sorry! :)

    Yeah Nvidia is developing a mini-PCIe card graphics technology for notebooks. Soon perhaps we will be able to upgrade notebook graphics. But not now.

    Of course, you'll need a notebook with that particular nVidia technology built in.
