Lol, I recall the same issue with when I moved from my first mac (a Mac IIxi, aka a 68k Mac) to the powerpc based ones (my performa 5600, I still have it).

The non "Universal" (or as they called them "FAT" back then) binary apps ran alot slower than even the old 25mhz IIxi lol.

I hear they have issues like that with the intel macs too esp CS2 >_<

oh well when my ppc's die I'll get one

I just added a seond hand powerbook G4 12" to my Mac collection -

24" iMac (Intel)
eMac
iBook clamshell - indigo
beige powermac G3 desktop

The powerbook does get a little warm and the wireless conection is poor compared to the ibook, but its ultra portable and perfect for surfin the net, emails etc. Battery lasts around 3hrs light use.

I have Windows XP installed on the iMac so I can test the odd website, downloaded VMware the other night - http://www.vmware.com/ which lets you access Window apps without restarting and booting into Windows, and unless I am missing something it's free. Because its emulated (VMware) it isn't as fast as when I boot properly into Windows but it will come in handy.

I think if I was using a notebook/laptop as my main machine I would invest in an external keyboard and monitor for playing games and design work.
