I was just wondering what is the best supported Apple portable as far as hardware goes? I'm wondering like exact models, not just "ibook", ie "ibook X video card X video memory, etc.." Thanks.

My Tibook 867mhz radeon 9000 Airport 1.0 has great support.

Best bang-for-buck is an iBook 900mhz G3 with radeon 7000(?) and airport 1.0

I think stimuli has hit the nail on the head there with those models. They have everything(?) supported except for the modem and DVI output on the TiBook (correct me if I'm wrong there).

The newer PowerBooks and iBook G4s may never have AirPort Extreme supported . . . :(

the modem on the ibook G3 does have a driver, but only for kernel 2.4, not 2.6. surely it will be ported to 2.6 someday soon.

My TiBook 400Mhz Rage 128M3 (Yes it's a bit old) works perfectly.

See: http://www.rockhopper.dk/linux/powerbook/powerbook-titanium.html for more information
