    I think manufacturers are removing optical drives from laptop computers too soon, specially Apple laptops, which removed them even earlier than most other manufacturers did.

    I strongly disagree


    I like having the optical drive, plus the 17" PowerBook also gives me a full size keyboard, with number pad,

    Must be a one of prototype ;)


    and a nice size display. I wonder if it would be possible to upgrade my 17" G4 PowerBook with a 1920x1080 hd display, or if that would not be a good idea given the limitations of the 128mb VRAM Radeon mobility 9700 video card inside of it? I seem to remember someone doing this conversion, but can't remember where, or if it really was done on a G4 PowerBook.

    See below (+ ThePlayer who did it too).

    FullHD is an issue for non silent upgrade MacMinis with just 32MB VRAM, with 128MB one can^H^Hould run 2 of them without ever running into issues.
