Is there anything that makes recent models of Powerbooks superior to recent iBooks with a comparable processor?

My Pismo (my first Powerbook!) is getting long in the tooth, so I've started to look over Apple's offerings again. Now, I usually buy used to avoid the biggest depreciation hit... and I've often found with computer hardware in general that 1-2 year old pro stuff is a better bargain than latest-greatest consumer stuff.
The recent iBook specs have made me think this isn't necessarily so. Recent iBooks from just released to a year old look quite competetive with Powerbooks in the 2 year old range.
