Leading-edge Industrial Design
The sleek exterior is as stunning as ever. The 15-inch PowerBook G4 comes with all the refinements and esthetic touches that make it the most coveted full-featured notebook computer on the planet: 1.1 inch thick, 5.7 pounds, AirPort Extreme, aluminum design, an elegantly engineered slot-loading 4x-speed SuperDrive and a 4.5-hour battery. On the inside, faster PowerPC G4 processors, powerful graphics capabilities, up to 2 GB of RAM and the world's most advanced operating system combine to deliver off-the-charts performance.
Inside the 15-inch PowerBook G4 is a screamingly fast 1.5 GHz PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine. Advanced processor design and memory architecture are among several core advantages that enable the PowerBook G4 to pack such a tremendous wallop.
Exremely Fast Wireless
Every 15-inch PowerBook comes standard with AirPort Extreme built right in, so you're ready for 54 Mbps 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.
Wireless Internet Everywhere
AirPort Extreme uses radio waves to communicate. This works to your advantage: Unlike infrared signals, which require an unobstructed line of sight between the remote unit and the base station, radio waves can pass through solid objects from up to 150 feet away. Which means that you can take your PowerBook G4 into different rooms or onto different floors of a building and still maintain your active network connection -- and surf the Internet through walls.
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 4.7GB DVD-R discs at 4x speed.
