I read a lot of posts by SEO professionals (and wannabes) that there is little value in the PR Google assigns to a page. There is no doubt that it help determine position, but it's not as important factor as the quantity / quality of backlinks, for example.
Also, is PR something that only web professionals are particularly preoccupied with. If I am not mistaken the PR bar is not set as a default on Google Toolbar, which probably means that most people will not see it. Not a good thing for a trustmark.
What's the general view on PR?

hi, Lawrence, how are you?
There is no doubt that [PageRank] help determine position, but it's not as important factor as the quantity / quality of backlinks, for example.
The pagerank you see on the google toolbar (or any other pagerank checker) is always out of date - they update it infrequently.
To be honest, I hear less & less about pagerank, though I have to confess I check it occasionally for my sites.
I hope that helps!
