I know there have been rumors of dual G4 PowerBooks for some time, mostly from MacOSRumors, I have always thought it unprobable that Apple could release one.
Personally I would LOVE to have a dual G4 PowerBook. I used my PowerBook more as a portable desktop being plugged in almost all the time. Only when on a plane or for presentations would I use the battery. In fact, with my Wallstreet, I kept the battery in my bag! Usually I had the zip drive and CD-ROM modules in the laptop. Those along with the PCMCIA video card for a second monitor and I had a great desktop computer I could use at the office, take home or to a client's office. I used my PowerBook G4 in the same manner.
Now I'm ready to buy my next Macintosh and I need the performance of a Desktop. I do architectural work and use ArchiCAD, Electric Image, formZ, Photoshop, etc. I need the horsepower the dual G4 allows. If I could have the power of the current desktop machines in a portable package, it would be irresitable. I would no longer have to debate with myself what was more important - portability or performance.
In fact Electric Image has just been updated to launch two seperate renderers on dual machines for twice the rendering speed. Check out Electric Image Universe 5 (especially all you Lightwave users). <a href="http://www.electricimage.com
You must really be on the move. I'm thinking about configuring a slick desktop and setting it up as a server/renderbox, so that I can send my files to the render server to be rendered regardless of where I am.
By the way, can I see your stuff? I'm a FormZ tool.
