PC Plus review: Apple 17in Powerbook G4

 

The PowerBook's main claim to fame is still its looks.

Apple PowerBook 15-inch G4 review

 

One of a kind, Apple urges its users to 'think differently'

Stock 512MB of RAM (finally!) ; Good speed boosts ; Backlit keyboard ; New scrolling feature on trackpad

Intel machines are faster

Excellent machines, but not as good as the new Intel models

Apple iBook G4 review

 

Despite limited performance, this is a great portable laptop

Geared toward mobile use ; Good battery power ; Stays cool

Can't handle more advanced options ; Gaming capability is small

This is an ideal option for those on the move, but still fairly basic in some areas of performance

Apple PowerBook G4 (12-inch review

 

Apple PowerBook G4

Excellent design; good productivity performance; solid set of features and connections; great speakers; killer software bundle.

Lacks external volume and multimedia controls; middling gaming performance; just average battery life; free phone support lasts just 90 days.

Though pricier than the 12-inch iBook G4 and some comparable PC laptops, the 12-inch PowerBook G4's performance, solid set of features and software, and killer design will overjoy intermediate and advanced mobile users.

Apple 15-inch PowerBook G4 review

 

Apple PowerBook G4 (15-inch, SuperDrive)

Beautiful sleek-and-slender design; robust software package, including Mac OS X Tiger; illuminated keyboard and scrollable trackpad; SuperDrive DVD burner.

Expensive; only 90 days of toll-free technical support.

The high-performance, fully loaded, simply beautiful 15-inch PowerBook G4 will satisfy students and creative professionals who can afford to sacrifice cash for style.

Apple PowerBook G4 (17-inch) review

 

Apple 17-inch PowerBook G4 With the latest version of its 17-inch wide-screen PowerBook, Apple incorporates some nice upgrades but leaves out the one most of us were hoping for: a mobile version of the high-performance G5 chip . Still, the impressively...

Sublime Apple design; lighter than other comparably sized laptops; motion sensor protects hard drive; 512MB of RAM standard; scrolling trackpad; built-in wireless and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR; illuminated keyboard.

Expensive; features an older G4 processor, not a G5; only 90 days of toll-free telephone support.

The foxy Apple 17-inch PowerBook delivers the performance and the features most users will need, but it's more expensive than a similarly outfitted Windows laptop.

Apple G4 iBook series review

 

Apple G4 iBook series

Light; long battery life; slot-loading combo CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive; solid keyboard; fast video card; 802.11g networking option.

640MB maximum RAM; no option for an internal DVD burner; weak support offering.

The Apple iBook G4 is a rugged laptop, well suited for students and home users who want a small, affordable Mac laptop.

Titanium PowerBook G4

 

For the design of the Titanium PowerBook G4 new materials and processes were investigated. The Titanium "skins" combined with a carbon fiber frame resulted in a stiff and light product. Although the 15.2" display is larger than the conventional 14"...

Apple 12-inch MacBook review (2016)

 

Apple's updated 12-inch MacBook for 2016 boasts faster processor and storage performance, 10 hours of battery life and a form factor like no other. But does all this justify its apparent compromises and high price? Here's our 12-inch MacBook review

Undeniably beautiful design ; Improved processors on all models ; More resilient battery performance ; A screen to die for

Single port limits some users ; Keyboard takes some practice ; You'll need to save up

There's no escaping the fact that this is a very similar laptop to its 2015 predecessor, which so divided the tech community. But we think the problems have been overblown. The engineering on show is superb, and the performance is completely acceptable...
