I run Project Builder, Oracle, Postgres, and do some iMovie stuff on it as well. My 12" model has the 640 mb of RAM and the 40gb HD. It's an excellent box - very fast and has a small footprint.

I can run Oracle in the background and do my Project Builder compilation without a drop in speed. I think its actually the perfect developer laptop -- light, easy to read monitor, nice speed, inexpensive.

I mean, 640mb of RAM on a G4-867 is a desktop replacement. I haven't had a desktop since I picked up my original Ti Book-400. If I could do everything on that, the speed bump here is marvelous.

And I get to carry it in a smaller courier bag now too.
