    So I was reading about my PowerBook and I came across that it only supports PC Cards(PCMCA), I was planning to get a ATT 3G card for it but I am unsure if the card is compatible with the PowerBook G4.:confused:

    The card is a ATT Sierra Wireless AirCard 881, if this doesn't work then what would be a good card?

    All G4 'books are Cardbus compliant. Most G3's as well.

    From what i can fish up it IS compatible with Mac OS X however I cannot find the system requirements to know if it works on PowerPC (I assume it will) As i dont believe MacBooks had PCMCIA I believe those have ExpressCard (I could be wrong)

    EDIT: You have to have a AT&T LaptopConnect plan to use it (in case you didn't know)

    I had no clue PowerBook G4s had PC Card slots. I thought only G3s had them.

    12" PB G4s do not. The TiBooks and the 15 and 17" AlBooks had them.
