I just saw an article here about SuperDrive upgrade for G3 iBook from MCE Technologies. But it seems to have been taken off for one reason or other. But the reason I'm mentioning it again is because I've constantly heard from people here and elsewhere that G3 chip itself is not capable of handling DVD authoring related tasks. I've heard someone mention that to encode Quicktime into MPEG for DVD using G3, it would literally take all day, whereas G4 can do it x1 or x2 the amount/time length of its content. The fact that SuperDrive upgrade is possible for G3 is intriguing to me because, 1) Are these people offering SuperDrive upgrade for G3 knowing the process will take all day? 2) or G3 IS capable of handling encoding process faster than we think (maybe Sahara G3 with 512k Cache makes difference?) 3) or can something be done via software to speed up the process? and last but not least, 4) is it possible that upcoming iBook upgrade might have SuperDrive upgrade? This is interesting topic for me because I really would like to see iBook with SuperDrive capability. I know people will say "if you want iBook with SuperDrive, get 12" PowerBook." Nevertheless, prospect of spending less for laptop with SuperDrive capability (iBook with SuperDrive has to cost less than 12" PowerBook I think) is enticing to me. Any thoughts on this?
