Graphics, User Interfaces Adobe has announced it is dropping PowerPC support from its next version of the Creative Suite for the Mac. "By the time the next version of the Suite ships, the very youngest PPC-based Macs will be roughly four years old. They're still great systems, but if you haven't upgraded your workstation in four years, you're probably not in a rush to upgrade your software, either. Bottom line: Time & resources are finite, and with big transitions underway (going 64-bit-native, switching from Carbon to Cocoa), you want Adobe building for the future, not for the past."

High-end G4 notebooks have the miserable performance of middle-class Atom netbooks with the weight of modern Intel Core notebooks. Combine that with the horrible durability of old batteries (new ones are half the price of a new netbook) and you'll end up with a very expensive piece of slow hardware.

Oh, BTW: Try to get some SD RAM to increase the main memory to something somewhat acceptable.
