    *Sigh* just when I thought I had the up-to-date stuff, they improved my powerbook! I was feelin' kinda down about it, and then I tried to console myself by saying this: one day, when I'm supporting myself, I might be successful. And at that point, I'll be able to continuously get the new shiat. All right!

    seems like the same PBook... G4 1.67.

    The update was done a little while back as far as I can see. Higher res screens, longer battery, etc..

    Here is a blurb fromthe last PBook update:
    Apple Updates Two PowerBook Models
    ""(October 19, 2005) Today Apple updated its 15" and 17" PowerBook G4s with upgraded displays, longer battery life and 8x SuperDrives that now burn dual-layer DVDs (the 12" PowerBook has not been updated and includes an 8x SuperDrive without dual-layer support). The two new models each feature displays with millions more pixels than before; the 15" PowerBook has 1,440x960 resolution (26 percent higher than before), and the 17" unit has 1,680x1,050 resolution (36 percent higher than before). In addition, each new laptop has 128MB of graphics memory and a DVI output that will run any Apple Cinema Display, including the 30" Cinema HD Display. Battery life has been extended to a maximum of 5.5 hours, an hour more than the previous PowerBooks. Rounding out the upgrades are built-in optical digital audio input and output, which means you can hook them up to 5.1 surround sound speaker systems. Optional configurations can give you a new 15" or 17" PowerBook with a 100GB internal hard drive running at 7,200rpm and up to 2GB of RAM. See www.apple.com/powerbook for more information.

    * 12" PowerBook 1.5GHz G4 | 512MB RAM | 80GB Hard Drive | $1,500
    * 15" PowerBook 1.67GHz G4 | 512MB RAM | 80GB Hard Drive | $2,000
    * 17" PowerBook 1.67GHz G4 | 512MB RAM | 120GB Hard Drive | $2,500
