My first post on my new 1.5GHz Powerbook G4.
I'm liking it a lot; I was a bit concerned that I'd find the fairly low
resolution to be an issue (1280x854 doesn't exactly maximise the potential of its 128Mb graphics
card-- even the 3-year old Inspiron 8100 it's replacing
managed 1400x1050 with a 32Mb card), but I'm getting used to it pretty quickly.
Am dual-booting OSX with Mandrake 10.1 PPC for now (and even running them simultaneously, thanks to the impressive Mac on Linux), as I was used to Mandrake 10.1 on my Dell anyway. The only real bummer is the well-documented lack of any Airport Extreme drivers for Linux as yet-- I'm sure the guys will get there eventually though.
