    I have a G4 1.5 Powerbook w/ 768MB of RAM that I am thinking about selling before it becomes obsolete in about a year or two. Will software I bought for this computer (the G4) work with the Intel (probably a new iBook when they come out). I am only really concerned about Microsoft Office and a few apps like Roxio.

    Also, what have you found is the best channel for selling your computers for the most amount of money? I'm thinking eBay but I'm not really sure.
    I want to get $1000 for my whole setup (case, stand, BT mouse, computer, and all my software feshly installed.

    Thanks guys!

    your software will run but it will be slow unless they release free universal binary updates. do not let this dissuade you from upgrading. I have found i do not even need office since i have iwork and roxio toast works ok through rosetta. they should a universal binary out soon.

    Office seems to run fiarly well through rosetta, can't speak for roxio though.
