As a student, I find myself in need of a portable more and more for getting common assignments done. A friend of mine (an MR user) bought a TiBook for such uses and gets use out of it daily at school. I currently have a PowerMac G4 Dual 500 model sitting in my room that I'd be willing to part with, if a good enough portable was available. I'll post the rest of the Specs below. What laptop do you think would be a fair trade for my PowerMac?

Dual 500MHz G4's
256 MB Ram
40GB HD
OS 10.4.8
DVD-RAM
Zip Drive
Airport card installed
Keyboard and mouse

thanks guys

Humm... *Looks to side - Sees SuperComp*

Anywho, since you can see this post as I'm typing it, I'd say a lowend Ti would possibly be fair, but then again, A G3 iBook might be more comprable price wise, but the Dual G4 is in my opinion still of value.

And we all know how much faster G4's will run Tiger over G3 machines. :)

those dual G4s rocked.

id hate to think you would want to exchange a DP for a single processor ol school powerbook...its like a downgrade of sorts.

As much as I realize I will take a SIGNIFICANT power decrease, I do still want to be portable again. Like PlymouthBreezer said above, The Titanium G4, although a low end G4, would easily suit my needs as a mobile unit, as he uses his right beside me almost daily.
