    You won't be able to increase the CPU speed, so you'll have to do it by other methods, such as increasing the RAM or installing a 7200RPM notebook hard drive. How much RAM is in the system? You could do with 1GB really.

    Have a nosey Here and buy some RAM from there (or the version from another country)

    Im also hoping to buy a g4 powerbook, but the 1.7 ghz model, will this be ok for video editing?

    I recently got a 17 inch powerbook and its working out great for me. Just make sure you have at least 1 Gig of Ram, otherwise you wont see the real performance of the laptop.
