iBooks are cheaper than PowerBooks (edit: maybe not). PowerBooks are more powerful than iBooks. So what can a PowerBook do that an iBook cannot do? How well does the average iBook run? Is it usable for day-to-day tasks? Can it run TenFourFox or LeopardWebkit well? Can it run an official browser that is still good today (like Safari 5)? Can it run games well? How much better is an iBook G4 over an iBook G3? I suppose it is more worth it to get an iBook G4 because they are about the same price but can run Leopard. How much more powerful is a PowerBook vs an iBook? The Aluminum PowerBooks seem to be more expensive than the Titanium PowerBooks, probably because they look like MacBok Pro's. Is it worth it to get a PowerBook over an iBook? How well does a Titanium PowerBook run? Can it run TenFourFox and LeopardWebkit well? Can it run games well? Can it run Minecraft 1.5.1? Can it play YouTube Videos through some app like MacTubes? Bahh nevermind all these questions, just give me a whole summary. If you own a PowerBook and/or iBook, I would like you to test Mars Explorer 2.22 on it and tell me how it runs. Compare iBooks vs PowerBooks. ---------- What about Clamshell iBooks? They are nice looking, but most of them are very expensive ($100-$200). I would think they are weak and can't handle TFF well. And of course they cannot run Leopard. ---------- Safari 4 is the latest for Tiger. How well does that work with today's internet, besides the security breaches? Safari 5 runs well. I think it would be better if it ran Leopard because most awesome software for PPC only works on Leopard. I like the look of Tiger though. ---------- Also, I have a dead iBook that died from Radeongate. It is a 700MHz G3 model, and I think it is 14". Would it be a good idea to get the same, or similar, model of iBook so I can exchange parts? Probably better to get similar, not same, as a 700MHz G3 is weak.
