    G5 PowerBook probably won't be released for at least 10-12 months, so I wouldn't even factor it into my decision unless you can wait that long.

    One year from now, after the G5 PBs are out, I'd say a 1.8GHz G5 12in PB would be about the same price as the 1.33 G4 12in is now. Obviously it would have more RAM, bigger HD, etc. So the 12in 1.33 would probably be worth at least $900-$1000 (at least on eBay) a year from now. Which isn't bad, usually PowerBooks have much better resale value than a comparable PC laptop.
