if your powerbook supports dual link dvi then yes you can go full res on a 30"

I was under the impression that none of the G4 powerbooks were able to drive a 30" display.

it was an option on 15" models at one stage and is standard on current model 17" G4 powerbooks

If you added the 128 video card ram with Dual DVI then yes they can. The 17inch came standard with it and you had to add it as an extra to the 12 and 15inch models with revision of Aluminium powerbooks before this current one.
