“I was looking forward to the meeting with Apple’s representatives because they were bringing me two of the hottest notebooks on the market: the new 12-in. and 17-in. PowerBook G4s introduced earlier this year,” writes Christopher Allbritton for Popular Mechanics.

Allbritton looks at the 12-inch PowerBook, writing, “…despite its small size, it packs power.
