    what will the performance of FCE2 be on a 933/640Mb?

    which will it be smoother and faster btw:
    iBook G4 14" 933Mhz 640Mb
    PowerBook 12" 1Ghz 768Mb
    PowerBook 15" 1Ghz 768Mb

    Of course, we all know the answer, But will it be larger.

    Just like the iBook 14" 933Mhz and the 1Ghz, the difference in performance was test, by MacWorld, to be 2 sec difference and the cost was 200$ more. Therefore, 933 is better for the value.

    iBook 1299,
    PB 12 1599,&
    PB 15 1999

    I could always get a better SuperDrive that burns ±RW with Toast for less. So SDrive is no prob.

    But if the time performance will be very different I think tha PB willl be it.

    Just like in March 2004 MacWorld issue on page 26.

    Cinema 4D XL 8.5 Scored:
    4:51 minutes for the 12 PB 1Ghz &
    8:17 minutes for the 14 iBook 933

    is FCE2 as demanding as Cinema 4D XL 8.5?

    if you are going to use one of these programs

    Get a power book. The reason why PB are better is because of their bus speed, ram speed, and better graphics card. I would say the 15" is the best one to go with, have lots of screen to work with when doing your projects.
