I'm thinking about ditching my G5 1.8 single powermac for a new 1.67 17" PB. I mostly use it for the iLife apps and the G5 is hooked up to a 24" Dell LCD. Not sure if I would keep the display.

Any advice?

At least you know w it won't crash as much!

I have both, and I use my PB all the time - sure you lose some speed, but I can't take the PowerMac with me...
