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 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.

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"...

Not more than an inch in width and made of gleaming stain and scratch-resistant aluminium, the PowerBook G4 is all about sleekness and sexiness of design. What it isn't, though, is a handy portable to take ...

Lightweight and slim for such a powerful machine, sleek silver finish looks great, responsive and backlit keyboard with adjustable brightness, Bluetooth and WiFi, wide range of ports

Expensive, average battery life

The PowerBook hasn't been drastically overhauled, but it remains as one of the best options on the market for either Home or Office use. Be prepared to pay for it though.

Product Specifications

Miraculously engineered, the ultralight 17-inch PowerBook G4 is just 1-inch thin and 6.9 pounds, making it the thinnest and lightest notebook with a 17-inch display on the market today. The first thing you'll notice is the megawide display - the largest ever in a notebook. This PowerBook's stunning display gives you the same viewing area as a 19-inch CRT monitor. And as for the amount of information you can see on the screen at one time, the 17-inch PowerBook supports a resolution of 1440 by 900 pixels - an eye-popping 1.3 million pixels appearing on the screen simultaneously, with room aplenty for your menus, toolbars and palettes. Featuring a powerful 1.5GHz PowerPC G4 processor, up to 2GB of DDR RAM - and with AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth built in - the top gun of notebook computers has it all. The 17-inch PowerBook features a fiber optic backlit keyboard that's right out of the future. Built-in light sensors automatically adjust the keyboard illumination and your screen's brightness based on the available ambient light. You'll appreciate this breakthrough feature when you're working in a low-light environment such as an airplane cabin or a music or video studio. The 1.5GHz processor gives a tremendous performance boost with an advanced cache memory architecture that provides ultrafast dedicated memory with massively enhanced throughput. The 17-inch PowerBook G4 comes with 512MB of DDR SDRAM, expandable to 2GB of RAM - allowing you to run several RAM-hungry applications simultaneously, or to store an entire graphics project in main memory for fast image manipulations. The 17-inch PowerBook G4 comes turbocharged with the ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics processor. The Mobility Radeon 9700 features a number of cutting-edge graphics technologies, including programmable pixel and vertex shading for lighting and shadow effects never seen before on a notebook computer. It dramatically enhances all aspects of your visual experience in every application, perfect for photorealistic 3D games and cinematic-quality video. The 17-inch PowerBook comes standard with AirPort Extreme built right in, so you're ready for 54Mbps wireless networking out of the box. And with thousands of wireless-enabled "hot spots" in hotels, airport lounges, coffee shops and bookstores around the world, you can get online from practically anywhere. What's more, you can use your PowerBook G4, AirPort Extreme and Rendezvous (which seamlessly recognizes and links computers and digital devices to each other) to create your own secure wireless network. In addition to AirPort Extreme, you'll also find Bluetooth built into the new 17-inch PowerBook G4. Bluetooth lets you connect digital devices wirelessly. For example, you can use iSync, which comes bundled with all PowerBook G4 configurations, to synchronize your personal information among various Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as your PowerBook, mobile phone and Palm OS-based handheld. And Bluetooth lets you take advantage of GPRS connectivity to check your email from anywhere - a benefit that comes in handy on those occasions when an 802.11 wireless hot spot isn't available. The PowerBook G4 features FireWire, for connecting external hard drives and DV cameras, and USB, for connecting graphics tablets, digital cameras, printers and scanners. With more than 30 times the bandwidth of the popular USB 1.0 peripheral standard, FireWire 400 has become the gold standard for high-speed data transfer. And Apple ups the ante, effectively doubling data throughput with FireWire 800. The new 17-inch PowerBook G4 has two FireWire ports - one for the hundreds of FireWire 400 peripherals already available and the other for the coming generation of FireWire 800 peripherals. In addition, the PowerBook G4 offers the fastest connection to USB peripherals with two 480 Mbps USB 2.0 ports. Your PowerBook G4 with SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW) comes loaded with iDVD software. Use it to burn DVDs that can be played in most consumer DVD players. You can also use iTunes to burn your own CDs, or the Disc Burner feature in Mac OS X to burn data CDs. The SuperDrive reads DVD titles at 8x, and writes to 4.7-gigabyte DVD-R discs at 4x speed.
