Apple today announced a major upgrade to its Titanium PowerBook G4 notebook line with PowerPC G4 processors running at up to 1 GHz, the industry’s first slot-loading SuperDrive for reading and burning both CDs and DVDs, the fastest mobile graphics processor, the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000, and integrated 802.11 wireless networking. The new PowerBook line starts at just $2,299 (US).
“This is what our customers have been waiting for. The Titanium PowerBook G4 is the thinnest and lightest pro notebook in the industry,” said Greg Joswiak, vice president of Hardware Product Marketing. “The new PowerBook packs a 15.2-inch screen, 1 GHz PowerPC G4 processor, CD and DVD burning SuperDrive and ATI Radeon Mobility graphics into a 1-inch thin, 5.4 pound Titanium package. No other pro notebook comes close to these features.”
