1.33 Vs 1.5

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Ok with the powerbooks is there a big diffrence between the 1.33 chip and 1.5 chip. I currently have a 933 ibook so how faster would it be. Does any one have a PB with a 1.5 chip or a 1.33 chip. what do you think of it? Also besides for being cool is the back lit keyboard really worth the extraq cash, considering you get it with the 1.5

    For every day stuff, mail, web, Word Processing, you wouldn't see a difference. But everything else you would see a big jump. Your adding about 500Mhz to the machine.

    Uh, I believe that there is only a 170MHz difference? I have a 1.5GHz 15inch PB and a 1.33 12 and see little or no difference on everything I do. They have the same amount of RAM as well.

    Well it may be newer but i find it a bit slow. I am a network admin/software developer. When i am programing php it can be a bit slow to do some things. mysql also runs a bit slow on it.
