There is no rule that says you can't use an embedded processor in a desktop. It is just that the needs of each application are a little different. Embedded applications usually run on less power and require less speed. Desktops usually want speed over power savings. On the other hand, a laptop is a good example of an embedded application.

I guess I am used to Motorola's designation as host processor versus embedded processor.

17" Dual 1.3 Gig with 1Mb L3 each

I'm no expert but would think that a dual G4 laptop would be way hotter than a single 1.2 or 1.4Ghz G5. Personally, I think dual processors in a laptop is a bad idea. Lots of people seem to be hoping for it though.

According to MacRumors:

"The G5 will make its way into PowerBook lines in Jan/Feb, Xserve's later this year, and iMacs in approximately one year."

So the Powerbook G5 will most likely be announced at MWSF. I can't see Apple making no updates between now and then - so a speedbump of some sorts will probably occur soon - assuming they want to go about 6 months between updates.

I'm still getting a G4 one, because a) I bet any new G5 PowerBook will cost more than the current models (look at the towers) and b) do I really need a G5?



No.
