New Apple PowerBooks

Apple has unveiled some faster and better Powerbooks, and at some affordable prices! The computing giant revealed that Powerbooks featuring PowerPC G4 processors running up to 1.67 GHz, faster hard drives and a faster 8X SuperDriveTM would be coming our way soon. These new machines come with 512MB memory, faster graphics, integrated AirPort® 802.11g, Bluetooth 2.0 wireless networking and much more - including two new Apple patent-pending technologies - the scrolling TrackPad and the Sudden Motion Sensor.

The new PowerBooks deliver increased performance with both the 15- and 17-inch PowerBook models offering up to 1.67 GHz PowerPC G4 processors and industry-leading ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics processors with 64MB or 128MB of graphics memory. All models now include 512MB of 333 MHz DDR SDRAM and faster 5400 rpm hard drives for demanding professional applications. The 17-inch PowerBook now features Dual Link support to drive Apple’s breakthrough 30-inch Cinema HD Display as an external monitor, and this feature is also available as a build-to-order option on the 1.67 GHz model of the 15-inch PowerBook.
