Mine is the 15'' model, so goes up to 1024x768. You will have to try...
Thanks for this! I was actually really surprised at how much difference GPU hardware acceleration makes under 12.04 compared to Mac OS X. I have a 1.67 PowerBook with every optimization I could find for TFF and IceWeaselPPC, and this slower PowerBook (1.33) is significantly faster under 12.04 in pretty much every way. Scrolling is buttery smooth in some sites that aren't too script heavy (something I hadn't seen on this PowerBook, well, ever), and I'm just running stock InterWeb without any custom optimizations and with only ηMatrix installed.Glad you figured it out, and thanks for sharing the xorg.conf. Yeah. 12.04 remix is quite snappy on older hardware. No systemd, and I rebuilt a lot of software with some better optimizations. If you really want to see it zip along, toss it on a dual 2ghz G5 like I did.
