Do the Apple pro speakers that came with the G4 cube work with the powerbooks? These are the ones that connected via the USB port. Anyone know if there are any problems or sound quality issues? Thanks.

You mean the Soundsticks? Yeah, I just unplugged them from my Cube and stuck them on my PB, and they work. Just make sure you go under System Preferences > Sound and choose the output as the soundsticks.

Actually, I just remembered that my dad had these hooked up to his G5, too, so I'm pretty sure they'll play with any USB-port havin' computer.

Though I cannot confirm it, the Cube supposedly has higher powered USB ports, specifically made to handle the Apple Pro Speakers released for the cube. They will not work in any other computer, other than the Cube.
