Hello!

You can definitely upgrade your machine to the 1.67 GHz (Model A1106). Any of the logic boards on the A1106 page are compatible. However the 1.67 GHz (Model A1138) has a different layout and is not compatible.

You do not need to match VRAM (it affects video performance, but is not machine-specific). Just for information's sake, the 1.5 GHz (Model A1106) has 64 MB VRAM onboard.

I hope this helps!

if the Powerbook G4 is the from the 1.5-1.67ghz series, the 1.67 will be a direct fit. also I believe the 1.67Ghz board is 128MB Vram vs the 1.5GHZ 64MB. It however is not compatible with the 1.67GHz "DL Superdrive" Model.
