    Just for fun, thought I'd see how my 800Mhz Tibook coped with multiple videos....It's a new purchase by the way - cost me £5 and has a 2 hour battery life :)

    Ha, great! What about the video's resolution?
    You obviously like Mplayer more than CorePlayer? I definitely have to try it out too ...

    Tiny - 320X240. I have hundreds of shows that were transcoded for PocketPC - they're great for portables, don't tax the CPU at all.

    The Prisoner! Loved that show.

    At least I think I did. Kinda got confusing towards the end.

    Good job TiBook! It hardly broke a sweat. There’s life in these old Macs yet :)

    Heh. I remember doing this with BeOS back in the day and wondering why Windows just couldn't.

    With a functional 2hr battery for just a 'lady Godiva', you virtually got yourself a free TiBook. Nice one!

    I was actually in the market for a 65W power supply, then came across the Powerbook with no bidders - double bonus :)
