I'm sorry if this has been asked many times, and I do understand that it's very difficult to gauge performance compared to different processors, but I still need an answer:

How would you compare the relative performance of a 600MHz, 700MHz and 800MHz PowerPC G3 processor (in an iBook) to an Intel P3/P4 and AMD AthlonXP processor?

Just wondering (approximately) what kind of performance I can expect from a 600/700/800 iBook...I'm mainly using it for word processing, web surfing, music and occasional gaming...BTW, I'm accustomed to surfing with a cable modem on a P3 1GHz PC and hope to be able surf at about the same speed on an iBook...
