i don't know much about the powerpc g4 processors, but the best powerbook is rated at 1.67ghz. Can this be compared to other powerhouse laptops made for digital media manipulation? When you step out of the mac realm- all laptops that are made to handle, audio/video/drafting work etc. have processors that trump 1.67ghz. So I guess I'm asking is would the mac 1.67 hold it's ground verses a dell,hp,sony,toshiba... is 1.67 scaleable to windows laptops- if anyone knows what i mean please help.

This doesn't answer your question, but I don't think that PPC ghz directly relate to Intel ghz, although I've never found anything that directly compares the two.

i.e. 1.5 PPC ghz = ??? Intel ghz

It is very hard to relate. You really can't run a benchmark because AFAIK none exist, and there can't be a benchmark that compares the two.

Best you can get is a subjective comparision. For instance, "firefox on my 2.0 ghz pc opens this fast, on my 1.5 ghz mini it opens this fast". I am sure you could find some of that on this forum.

ok, that sort of confirms for me that the ppc ghz rating doesn't directly compare to the intel ghz rating, although I am still very interested in knowing with what proportions the processors compare, particularly a comparison between the g4/g5 and the p4/pM.
