just to answer the second part of your question – not really
at least I found that when I upgraded from a 1Ghz 17" 2gig RAM powerbook to a 15" 1.67 Ghz 2 gig RAM machine there was a SIGNIFICANT increase in performance with both softVNS and Jitter
what was even more important for me was that the newer machine had a graphics card that I could do some nifty openGL stuff on and give my main processor some more room for the VNS stuff etc…
so I would look for a significantly newer machine than the 12" – I think that machine is at least 5 years old or more…

Subject: [jitter] Re: softvns on a powerbook
well I mailed him with this question and he told me that there is no rule… He says ‘sometimes it runs fine, sometimes not’
So I was hoping some of you guys have been trying it. He told me he is gooing to make an upgrade of SoftVns, but I really don’t feel like waiting… I think I best buy a second hand Powerbook and then, once he released the new ‘Intel’ compatibel version buy me a macbook.
Then my other question, is a powerbook g4 12" 1Mhz, 768 ram strong enough to work with Jitter and SoftVns ?
Now I’m using a PC for Jitter and here I have 2 Gig RAM and a 2.16 Ghz Dualcore… Jitter works GREAT, and I hope it will work just as well on the little Mac I’m thinking of buying.
