    one would assume they would give him a tricked out top of the line machine, so probably a DP G5 with the fastest currently available processors and the bad boy video card. :dunno:

    He was only running a 20" display, and honestly, that shit could have been my PowerMac. It runs just as well, so until I saw this thread, I just figured it as the norm. :dunno:

    it should be pretty fast, but the main thing you can do to improve the app launching speed on a PowerBook is to get a 7200 RPM hard drive for it. i believe the factory drives on the current PowerBooks are all 5400 RPM.

    if he was using a dual processor G5 PowerMac with SATA drives, then there's nothing you can do to make your G4 PowerBook launch apps equally as fast though the faster hard drive definitely wouldn't hurt.
