I notice that the 867 MHz PowerBook has 32 MB VRAM versus the 1 GHz with 64 MB. How much "real life" performance difference does it make? And are there other benefits of having more VRAM?

Quartz extreme will take advantage of the extra vram and as QE matures the advantages of the extra vram will show. Games will benefit and running multiple displays will also benefit.

Games will see a real benefit, you could turn up 32-bit and high quality textures, because the card could load twice as many textures into vram.
