    I want to move over to Mac for my Mobile DAW. I'll be using Logic Audio 6 or Pro (so I'll be able to take advatage of the "freeze track" function, which is suppose to do wonders for cpu free-up). Should I go with a Ibook G4 900 or a Tibook 867? Does the L2 Cache make that much of a difference?

    Both will do well. You'll also want an external firewire HDD for audio.

    In regards to the second question, L2 speeds a processor up because it prevents the processor from having to go all the way back to the mail RAM to get frequently used data and/or instructions. Short answer is yes. In some cases CPUs with more L2 can operate 5-10% better than others at equivalent clock speeds.

    Santa brought me a 12inch AlumBook, Powerbooks are dual monitor ready, and cancome with a DVD burner.

    With the new models recently announced the current ones will be discounted.
