    I have a few questions aobut what I should do with my powerbook.. I have had some bad things happen latey regarding money so I might sell my pbook. I'm new here to Macrumors. but have been a Mac user for about thee years. I have a powerbook 1.25ghz with i gig of ram a 80 gig hard drive with the superdrive,,.
    here is what i might do tell me what you think is the best

    1.sell it out right and just use my imac g4 untill i move then buy something but then my display has no use.
    2.sell it and by a 550g4 tipowerbook from my friend or trade him pluss about 800 for mine his bowerbook has 1gig of ram and a combo drive with a 60 gig hard drive.
    3.or trade him that powerbook ti and a powermac dual 800mhzg4 with 1gig of ram a 2x superdrive and it has two 120 gig hard drives pluss he will give me 200 for my powerbook.

    I love having a awesome portable becaue i do take it everywhere with me .. I originally bought it so i could edit videos and do all my school work plus i thought i was going to be moved out by now but that has not happened and my editting has had to take a back seat to school jobs and some business ventures... but i do like the 15 inch screen because i like being able to write a word document and have say a web page or something else open. I do entend to start doing more video work soon and I AM sTILL IN SCHOOL so I STILL have papers to write and i did just buy a 20inch apple display because it was onsale for a good price. SO should i keep mine sell it on ebay or do one of the trades thank you .... I need your help I CAN not make up my Mind.. thank you

    if you don't really need the portability i would sell the laptop outright and then either sell the monitor as well or use one of the spanning hacks to have dual displays on the iMac.
