yea sorry, that was a response in the subject line. I just think the G5 chip is too hot to squeeze into a laptop up to par with apple's size standards. Liquid cooling techiques have not matured enough support a G5 either, so my hopes are on the iMac G5 rev which is sorely needed to compete.
Also, I have not given up hope on a dramatic powerbook G4 chip rev. The new Dothan chips from Intel (part of the centrino family) are about to debut and they are going to really give the G4 a run for its money. I'll post news on a G4 Dothan comparison as they become available.
Apple will never update the imac line before the powerbook line. That is just a matter of marketing. The power line has to be more powerful sooner than the other lines. It just gonna happen this way. So my vote is for the powerbook, even though it proves to be very difficult.

I don't think that's true per se. I mean, in theory it should be. But for a while, the eMac was the most powerful in the line. I think it's a matter of what they can do first. I do believe we will see an iMac G5 before a powerbook G5. Because, if they can do it in the imac but can't in the powerbook, they are missing out on sales of a very powerful home computer.
