    uh, the Titanium price dropped $500 a few weeks ago, and you get another $500 off if you're an apple employee(only for the 500Mhz model, the 400Mhz only got a $400 discount and the employee discount doesnt apply). iBook is still the same price

    it would be a better idea to buy an iBook and OC it to 600/100.... at least until Onyx gets released.

    i would never OC an iBook if i got one. voiding your warranty on any proprietary system is dumb cos if something goes wrong and hardware needs to be replaced it is more cost effective to buy a new system. i want an iBook really bad, but i'm gonna wait for a revision. and of course i'll be getting the 3 year apple card plan on it.

    you wouldnt even do an OF tweak to get the bus up to 100Mhz? 66Mhz is just too slow

    I wouldn't overclock a mac, but a pc for sure cause pc won't last as long as a mac. you'll have to maintain ang eventually upgrade or just literally change it.

    I don't know if this is still the case, but the Mac processors were underclocked from the factories, so you could oc a lot before causing any problems. I oc'd my beige G3 from 233 to 266 without any added fans or heat sinks. It's my sense of adventure, I guess ;)

    You can overclock macs way easier and safer than pcs. Plus you get better results, and you don't risk melting the processor.

    only on g3s. and pcs are way easier to overclock... and safer IMO since there are much more accurate guages and cooling devices for pc sockets.
