During April I was about to get a G4 PowerPC but I decided to wait for the G5. My local store is about to have the G5 in stock, but a couple of friends told me that a PowerBook would be better for me, however I dont know if the PowerBook will live up to my expectations. Will I be able to do the following with average performance on a 12" PowerBook? (12", 15" is too big for me to carry around) Transfer video from my Sony IP-55 over FireWire and do slight video editing in Final Cut Pro 4, or Final Cut Express. Burn DVD's Do quite a lot of Photoshop work and web design. FlashMX Maybe Maya for 3D Modelling later on If I can do all that on the 12" PowerBook with decent performance then I'll get it, since I want a Mac and a Laptop, and the PowerBook is both. Thanks in Advance!
