If you want to run PC software you can't really use an iBook, unless you want to run it through emulation (Virtual PC) which is dead slow.

Yeah,

I just wasn't sure which would be faster/slower

VPC on ibook with dedicated processor

or

bootcamp or paralelles on mb with no dedicated processor


furthermore, there is one program that is native to powerpc mac--didn't know which would be faster--ibook or macbbok
