Is a 1.67 ghz powerbook 15 inch last revision with 2 gigs of ram a fair trade for a 20 inch iMac core duo stock?

Under that reasoning, I'm NOT supposed to trade a Powermac G5 2.5 dual for a stock Intel iMac.../sarcasm
As the the PowerBook has a G4 processor, which is less powerful than a G5 which is slightly less powerful than an Intel Core Duo chip I would have thought you would go for the more powerful of the options.

But thats just my reasoning...

The iMac is more computer.

I say yes because they both are going for about the same price on the market (eBay, CL).
I agree with this. I'd probably say it's about a fair trade. the iMac will definitely be faster, but the Powerbook has 2gbs of RAM and is plenty fast itself. If you need portability, you're making a good choice.

I dont really need portability, but then again I dont really need the "power" of the iMac. Descisions...
