i purchased a maxed out version of the generation prior to this. (1.5ghz)

this update doesn't bother me. not much of an upgrade. i will look forward to the 2nd and 3rd gen g5 powerbooks though.

I am excited about the new powerbooks.  i think it is ridiculous that you have to pay for the extra 64 mb's considering that it it standard on many dell lap tops.  but whatever. man the new pb looks tight.

im sorry but the standard in laptop for video memory is 32-64mb and most of the time its SHARED memory. So i think 128mb if dedicated memory is awesome

but for those of us in the pc world, a 128mb mobility radeon 9800 has been around for quite a while.

I haven't seen a 128MB radeon in a PC notebook as thin as a powerbook yet. Sure you can get them but then your notebook ends up being 20lbs.

And the best thing about Mac's is that it's resale value is great so if you want to you can buy a new PowerBook and then sell it to almost pay for a new G5 PowerBook when it comes out.

try 7 pounds.

or just get a good computer from the start. there are a number of 64-bit pc laptops out already. and some of them are very thin and light.
