Anyone here running these apps on a 1.33 G4 iBook?

After some feedback on how it handles these apps :)

maya will run fine.
i used to run it on a 500mhz g3 ibook and it ran fine on that.
obviously a 1.33ghz ibook isnt going to be lightning fast at rendering but it will handle it fine.

I've used a 1.33ghz 12" PB for some serious (1gb+, 100s of layers) Photoshop retouching. It worked much better than I expected.

My advise :: Get as much RAM as you can. I did the same for my PB (1.25gb). Both apps need as much as you can give them.

Thanks guys, I am now thinking I would be better off getting the baby Powerbook and hooking it up to my existing Sony CRT. Can I span the two monitors??

Spanning is great.

Now you'll also be able to use Keynote with presenters notes. 8) VERY cool.
