My question is, how can a PowerBook G4, less Ghz then a 1.6 ghz G5 PowerMac support Apperture and the 1.6 ghz not support it. Anybody want to explain this to me?

    I think it has to do with the graphics card. If you updated your G5 tower to one of the below-listed graphics cards, you should be ok I would think.

    Maybe contact Apple and ask them about it.
